Know About Us

Why is Ulland Brothers one of the largest excavating and paving contractors in the region?

Oscar and Palmer Ulland began their wood-cutting business back in 1920 with little more than a hand saw, an old Ford truck and a simple philosophy – always keep your word to your customer, always do your best work, and success will follow.


Many things have changed at Ulland Brothers over the years. We have grown from a two-man wood-cutting partnership to one of Minnesota’s largest excavating and paving contractors.


While we are always finding new and better ways to solve old problems, we never lose sight of the simple philosophy that built our business. We know that our work is a reflection of our company and ourselves.

At a glance, we may look like any other contractor. Like other contractors, we have a complete fleet of construction equipment. While our aggregate reserves ensure that we can always supply the highest quality materials to our customers, our greatest strength is not our aggregates.


At Ulland Brothers, our most valuable resource is our people. Their dedication to producing outstanding work is reflected in every job they do. Their training, education and experience will ensure that your project will be done on time and within budget. Their pride and commitment to quality means that your project isn’t just another job… it’s a Ulland Brothers job.


On the job site, unforeseen problems can often derail a project. These delays can mean wasted time and money.


With over 100 years of experience, Ulland Brothers has the knowledge and versatility to avoid and overcome unexpected challenges as they arise.


Our people specialize in solutions, not excuses. We believe that safety is the most important part of any job we do. By implementing the strongest safety requirements in the industry, we enable our employees to do their best work.


But dependability to us really means one thing: We do what we say we will do. Every Time.
