ABOUT JOHN FARIS
The family business is a lifestyle in the Faris family.
Growing up on his family's dairy and egg farm, John Faris went on to pursue an agricultural education at the University of Guelph. When he married Connie in 1979, they returned to the family farm to raise their children and run the business.
A lifetime working with the land and heavy machinery drew John to the excavation business. He and Connie started Faris Excavating Ltd. in the year 2000 with the farm as their centre of operations. After investing in their first excavator, the business proceeded to grow and has been enhanced with a wide variety of machinery to cater to the needs of both residential and large scale projects.
John's dedication to family and getting every detail right is evident in his commitment to seeing that customers have a finished project they will be proud of. He ensures every project is completed in a timely manner and to the customer's satisfaction.
ABOUT ANDREW FARIS
For son Andrew, joining Faris Excavating was an easy decision. He started operating the farm's tractors as a child and gained experience in the excavation business during high school. As part owner, Andrew has committed himself to taking projects from the bid stage to the final approval of each client.
Andrew also brings a love of culture as a bonus to working with our increasingly diverse communities. He spends each winter backpacking through a different part of the world and immersing himself in absorbing their lifestyles and traditions. His passport already bears stamps from Australia and New Zealand, followed by treks through Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Central America!
