It’s rare to find an entrepreneurial success story that literally started from the ground up, but for Don Hearn Sr., his legacy began in 1966 with the purchase of a backhoe to install a septic system for his own home.

These humble beginnings became the foundation for a diverse portfolio of companies that helped strengthen the region’s economy for the next 50 years. Don Hearn Sr., together with his sons Don Jr., Bradley and Steven, have demonstrated remarkable ingenuity for launching businesses that exceed the expectations of customers both locally and from around the world.
