Our Story

Mark Tompkins founded Tompkins Landscaping Corp as a lawn mowing service provider while in high school. In the late 1980’s, Mark’s hard work and dedication enabled him to expand his lawn mowing service into a full-service commercial and residential excavation company that is now Tompkins Excavating.

Stacey Tompkins joined the family company in 1991 and became the President and Owner in February 2013, thus making Tompkins Excavating a Woman Owned full-service excavation and site development contractor. Stacey utilizes her more than 30 years of business management experience to continue to advance Tompkins Excavating’s reputation as an industry leader. While overseeing all business development, strategic planning, financial growth, and team building Stacey continues to sustain the company’s involvement in her local community’s activities and events.

While all three of their sons serve key roles within the company, their eldest son, Kevin Tompkins, joined the business full time in May 2019 after graduating from Northeastern University with a degree in Civil Engineering. Kevin’s responsibilities as Operation Manager includes project estimating, business development, fleet management, employee training, and implementing the latest field technology.

Stacey, along with her family, have structured Tompkins Excavating to be treated as extended family which is evident by the cohesive teamwork and high-quality projects dispensed each and every time. Tompkins Excavating has now faithfully served clients in the Lower Hudson Valley, including Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland and Orange counties for the past 35 years and will continue to do so.
