History

Sub-Zero Excavating, Inc. was founded in 1998 by Robert Fletcher.  At the time, the company offered only one service, Equipment Rental.  With a single backhoe as its only asset, Sub-Zero searched for the best way to serve its clients.  With this as its main goal, the company grew rapidly.  Within months, the company had four backhoes and excavator.  Within a couple years, it had an entire fleet of excavators, backhoes, loaders, skidsteers, semi-trucks, trailers, and compactors.  However, the corporation came to the realization that it was merely renting its equipment rather than offering their intellectual capital.  As a result, in 2000, Sub-Zero pivoted to offer Operated Equipment Rental, giving our clients an opportunity to contract our operators as well.  This would allow our clients to become partners with us throughout their projects rather than through a mere transaction.

In 2002, Sub-Zero added a Utility Installation Division to complement its Operated Equipment Rental Service.  The company thrived for years becoming one of the most dominant underground construction corporations in Southern California.

As years passed, the executives had an idea that would change the course of the corporation.  Their idea was of a streamlined civil construction service.  In other words, it would be to turn Sub-Zero into a corporation that completes the entire civil construction scope of any project.  Putting this idea into practice, Sub-Zero opened both a Concrete Division in 2014 as well as a Grading and Demolition Division in 2017.  Since their inception, these two divisions have become powerhouses in their own industries.

Today, Sub-Zero Excavating, Inc. is a Southern California based corporation that employs only the most skilled and qualified operators, laborers, estimators, and project managers, and views their intellectual capital as their greatest and most enduring asset. With our main goal of providing quality construction on-time and on-budget, we complete every project with complete honesty and integrity while servicing some of the largest general contractors and developers in Southern California.
