Our History


The Ryerson Family has over forty years of experience working in the excavation industry in West Michigan. Jon M. Ryerson started Ryerson Sewer Installers in 1980 with the help of his father in-law Bob Kimble.  He specialized in installing and replacing City Water Lines, City Sewer Lines and Septic Systems.  Over the years he has successfully built a high quality reputation and has always stood behind his work. His sons, Jon and Martin started their careers working for the family business as teenagers.  As young adults they expanded their horizons by working in different areas of the country.  Jon in excavation and Martin in business administration.  In 2018 they both returned to the area to purchase the business from their father. They changed the name to Ryerson Brother’s Excavating LLC and greatly expanded the excavation services offered by the business. In 2024, Lee Marcus bought a majority share of Ryerson and partnered with Jon to continue the company’s legacy and commitment to excellence in excavation services while Martin moved on to expand his other business ventures.
