Erich Gamm of West Union Trenching

Our President
Erich Gamm

Erich is the president of West Union Trenching. He began his business venture when he was 16 years old and has whole-heartedly built this business to what it is today.

In 1993, Erich began burying drops to houses with a drop plow with one person helping. He has since expanded his services to include plowing, trenching, rock sawing, excavation and directional boring. The amazing team at West Union Trenching has also grown to over 60 employees.

Today, Erich is usually seen driving from job-site to job-site checking in with his teams or on his cell phone (which logs an average of 5,000 minutes a month!). Wherever you meet him, he is sure to greet you with a smile.
