About Us

Over 55 years of experience

Livengood Excavators Inc. humbly began as Harvey Livengood Excavating Contractor around 1947. The company started as a one man owner-operator business that consisted of only Harvey and his Michigan cable shovel. He dug basements and hauled fill. Gradually, the company grew as Harvey acquired a D4CAT and other equipment.

Harvey’s son, Leo, became an operator after school and during summers, and eventually became president. Leo purchased the company, and it became incorporated as Livengood Excavators, Inc (LEI) in 1970.

Leo’s son, Tim, also had an early start working as a truck driver, paver and equipment operator, and estimator. Under Tim’s leadership, LEI became the first to utilize AGTEK automated takeoff technology in the Lehigh Valley. He established repeat clients in commercial, industrial and residential site development. Leo, with over 55 years of experience, and Tim, with over 38 years of experience in the excavating industry, oversee operations and provide on-site project management to expedite job progress and ensure responsive, quality work.

LEI has completed some of the largest site development projects
in the Lehigh Valley including:

Lehigh Valley West, a 400 acre industrial park, which entailed total site work, infrastructure and HOP improvements including two bridges. This was accomplished while simultaneously completing all site work for the Bridgestone Firestone distribution center. LEI executed all phases of earth moving, utilities, paving and complete reconstruction of PA route 512 for Hanover Corporate Center, a business commercial and industrial park.


Other commercial work includes:

  • Millard Refrigerated, a 1,000,000 square foot cold storage facility
  • Weis Markets in Fogelsville, Macungie and Forks Township
  • Giant Supermarket & Shopping Center in Kutztown


Residential projects include:

  • The Hills at Lock Ridge which features over 700 units of twins, town homes and single family dwellings with extensive open space and recreational areas
  • Traditions of America Active Adult Communities in Hanover Township
  • Bridle Path
  • Wedgewood

Livengood Excavators, Inc. has become the premier industry leader in the greater Lehigh Valley with the founding ethics of quality work and integrity at the cornerstone.
