History of Art’s Excavating

Art Oster started working with his Uncle Alex Ott in the Medicine Hat Contracting Company sometime in the 1940’s. Art later started Art’s Excavating in 1966 and ran the business until 1982, when his son Richard Oster took over the company. Richard retired in 2013 leaving the running of Art’s Excavating to his long-time Employee and Partner Warren Schneider.

Since the beginning, Art’s Excavating has grown considerably. The business has transformed from a home based operation into a large shop, office and yard located at 3278 17th Ave. SW in Medicine Hat Alberta, Canada.

Warren and his staff continue to provide excellent service to Medicine Hat and its surrounding area.
