Morning Star Excavation & Septic
began with Frank Shaw in 1980. Frank grew tired of the work at the family dairy in Cansevoor, but also was not happy with the millwork in Fort Edward. From this, he decided to start his own business, investing his $2500 savings in a backhoe, and began to dig holes in his backyard to practice. With extensive experience in farm machinery, he was able to begin hiring himself out to dig holes in a short period of time, while purchasing a dump truck for dirt hauling later on. From this point, he invested in his very own pump trucks, and Morning Star Excavating & Septic began!
