Together We Shine

Sitework for new Amazon facilities demands earthmoving on a massive scale. On a recently completed project, Pierce Builders, Granby, Connecticut, moved one million yards. For the current Amazon Fulfillment Center, they are working on — the company’s seventh such project — they’ve moved over half-a-million yards. In addition to mass earthwork, the company also performs water/sewer pipework and utility work.

To complete these projects, Pierce Builders runs a huge fleet of John Deere machines, including wheel loaders, excavators, dozers, and articulated dump trucks (ADTs). “Because we do every phase of the job, we need equipment ranging from small to large,” says Hal Pierce, president. “We own every size Deere loader except the 944K.”
