Our Company

About Us

Founded in 1968 by Gabriel De Acetis, Gabriel Excavating & Grading Ltd. has been servicing the construction industry in and around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Southern Ontario with quality grading and excavating services.

Starting with only one track-loader and, later, a hydraulic excavator, we have grown tremendously in size, scope and equipment since our inception. Rob De Acetis, Gabriel’s son, joined the firm in 1991 and has since then led our company through its expansion and equipment procurement to where it stands today.

Since 1984, we have been a member of BILD (Building Industry and Land Development Association). Our reputation for providing quality on-time services and maintaining a fleet of late model vehicles is second to none. We stand at the ready to move our premium fleet wherever they are needed with only a moment’s notice.

Our promise to you is that the right equipment will be available when and where you need it, no matter your working conditions.


Whether you’re working on industrial and commercial sites or residential projects, Gabriel Excavating has you covered. We offer a range of services to keep you on schedule while ensuring a clean and safe construction site for your workers and site visitors.
