After graduation from Michigan State University in 1975, Dean Wall began working for his fathers excavating business. In 1977 Dean went on his own by founding Dean’s Landscaping and Excavating in Sand Lake Michigan. The company then consisted of Dean, Jeff Gillespie, Chuck Bergman (both are still with the company today), a used dump truck, dozer, and backhoe.

In the early years while trying to develop a reputable company it was realized that a professional attitude coupled with strong work ethic would be the foundation for which the young company would be built upon.

Through the years as the company has grown so has its employee base and family involvement. Dean’s has been able to maintain family ownership with Dean his wife Kristie and their four children Cory, Zach, Molly, and Nate all of whom work in the business. 

While we are proud of the past accomplishments our company and its employees have been able to achieve, we continue to look toward the future to maintain a stable work environment for our employees, provide quality work for our customers and have a positive impact in our community.
