THE MAN BEHIND THE NAME POINDEXTER
There is a sense of family, hard work and honesty around Poindexter Excavating, Inc. It has been there from the beginning, with 15 employees, and it is there today in a company that has over 200 employees.
Billy Poindexter incorporated Poindexter Excavating in 1979 with a business card listing his name and home phone number – the quality of his work was all the advertising he needed. Poindexter Excavating, Inc. experienced regular, steady growth in its early years. In the late 1980’s several large jobs, including one that involved more than a million cubic yards of earth moving, pushed Poindexter to a new level. Through the 90’s, Poindexter continued to grow, add more equipment and hire more employees. The 2000’s brought some ups and also more than a few downs in the market with several downturns, and Poindexter was able to navigate those times to push harder into the renewed growth of the markets in the 2010s. Today, we are handling more than 85 projects each year involving millions of cubic yards of earth moved along with miles of pipe installed; making Poindexter, one of the largest and most capable excavating firms in Indiana.
Poindexter Excavating, Inc. has been a union shop from day one and is proud to continue that tradition of excellence and quality today. The pride, work ethic, and integrity that Billy Poindexter used to start the company are evident in every aspect of Poindexter Excavating, Inc. today. Those values have created a company that is one of Central Indiana’s leaders in land development.
