Schneider Excavating got it's start in 1932 when William Schneider was contracted to haul decorative rock to the site of the 1933-34 Chicago Worlds Fair, for rock gardens and water falls.
By 1947 William's son, Edward, had taken over full operations and had grown the company to include 4 gravel pits and many custom crushing contracts as well as excavating and demolition. Edward Schneider unionized the company during this period and began work on public roads such as the Rt. 20 bypass of Elgin, including the embankment for the Fox River bridge.
In 1960 Edward's son-in-law, Jack Hayes took over the Excavating side of the business. Besides incorporating the business in 1960, Jack brought the company into the modern era. With computers came estimating software, laser engineering and machine control.
Now days, Schneider Excavating Inc. continues to be committed to excellent service and project communication in the fields of Earthwork, Excavation, Sewer and Water, and Demolition. Under the direction of Steve Hayes, the company continues to service the Fox River Valley in towns such as; Elgin, Dundee, Crystal Lake, Algonquin, Huntley, Hampshire, Dekalb, Sycamore, St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Aurora, Elk Grove, Wheeling and Lake Barrington. These towns give a very general description or our work area.
