Nixcavating Celebrates 30 Years of Serving Longmont!

Nixcavating Inc., a Longmont-based and family-operated construction company is thrilled to celebrate its 30th year in business.  Founded in November of 1982 by Scott Nix, the company has had four different Longmont locations, including Scott’s home garage, since finding its most recent location at 1821 Boston Avenue in 1995.    

Nixcavating specializes in underground utility installation and repairs, but also handles excavation and site preparation, demolition, and irrigation throughout Longmont and the Front Range.  As a flexibly run small business, they are able to simultaneously meet the needs of residential and commercial clients while striving to keep with their company philosophy of treating those they’re working with as they’d like to be treated – with respect, confidence, and integrity.  The family operated business averages around 25 full time employees, including Scott’s two kids, Sara, age 29, and Brady, age 26.

 Being a supporting member of the community is a priority to Scott Nix, and through Nixcavating, does his best to support a variety of local non-profits.  Some of the regular events and causes supported are the St. Vrain Valley Habitat for Humanity, the Skyline Kiwanis Club, Boy Scouts of America, the Boulder County Fair, A Woman’s Work, Snow Care for Troops, as well as local baseball teams.  Scott Nix has made it a priority to personally be involved in his community, serving on the Longmont Transportation Advisory Board from 1986 – 1992, running for Boulder County Commissioner in 1996, serving on the Habitat for Humanity Board from 1995 to 2005, Realtors Citizen of the Year in 2002, and in 2011, awarded the Col. Dan Straight Distinguished Citizen Award by the Longs Peak Counsel Boy Scouts of America.

Scott Nix says “It’s a privilege to still be in business when so many other great companies haven’t made it.  There’s been a lot of hard work and sacrifices, and I can say my faith was tested, but it was also renewed.  Thank you to all our customers and employees – past and present – who’ve helped make this milestone a possibility.”
