“Striving for continued operations of excellence.”

In 1967, the founder of Carper Earthmoving, James Carper, started the business with just one machine – a 5010 elevating Scraper. As his son, Tim, grew up in high school in the 1970s, he started working with his father to build the business. Starting out small, they mostly worked on building simple terraces and waterways for many local farmers.

In the mid 1980s, Tim became a partner of the business, with the eventual plan to carry on the family business once Jim was ready to retire. As the years went on, Jim and Tim grew the business to include multiple machines and expanding their array of services. They modernized the fleet of scrapers, switching to a force load John Deere scraper, to better serve their clientele.

Then in the 2000’s, the third generation Carper, Tim’s son, Doug, joined the company working under his father in the family business. As Doug grew up, he also later joined his father as a partner in the business in 2015, when Carper Earthmoving, LLC was formed.

Today, Tim, his wife Arlene, and Doug run the show. Tim and Doug now serve clients across Northern Colorado and Southwest Nebraska, while Arlene manages the administrative aspects of the business. The founder, Jim, is happily retired, living in Arizona while his children continue on his legacy.
