LaFata & Son Excavating

LaFata & Son Excavating, cir. 1970’s, Guilford, Connecticut. Anthony and Salvatore LaFata (center) and crew.

Over 60 years ago, Salvatore LaFata began his family landscaping business. Through the 50’s and 60s, his commercial and residential company became well-established and respected in the community.

By the mid 70’s, Salvatore expanded his services to include excavating. By the 80’s, his son, Anthony LaFata, was on board and LaFata & Son Inc. became one of the most trusted excavators on the Connecticut shoreline. Anthony brought with him a unique mind for excavating methodology and advancing technology. He continually sought out ways to get the job done faster and better than the competition.  Anthony spent the next years researching, testing and redefining excavation strategies and technology.


The goal is to reduce cost, increase safety and profit, and remain environmentally proactive.

Seeking, researching and testing the most cutting-edge excavation and demolition equipment on the market is our ongoing company commitment.  And, the technology is growing exponentially. Imagine tomorrow.
