Our Story.

Jake Wray, Everett Wray and Curtis Wray standing “Grandpa” sitting.

You might say our family’s story started years ago, 1,800 miles away in Franklin County, Kansas, when Grandpa bought his first backhoe. Curtis (grandson) was born to Everett (son) soon after and grew up around excavating equipment. Like many young boys, he loved to see dirt move.

In 1985, Curtis and Jake’s (grandson) family moved from Franklin County, Kansas to Franklin County, Washington, and Grandpa followed in 2004. C&E Trenching was formed by Everett and Curtis in 1994, and started providing trenching for mostly the Ag industry. In 1997, C&E became licensed to install septic systems in the Benton and Franklin counties. Since that time, C&E has expanded into a full-service excavating contractor.

Grandpa is no longer with us, but his legacy surely lives on through C&E today.

The Crew

In our opinion, the C&E Trenching team ranks at the top of its class! Each of its members brings another unique layer to the team, as well as years of experience in the construction industry.

In addition to being hardworking and extremely dedicated, they are just a fun group of people to work with! We might be biased, but we think you will enjoy working with them as well.
