About Glidden Excavating & Paving

In 1986, Earle Glidden Jr. started the company right of high school, with a pick-up truck, a loader backhoe, one dump truck, and five employees. The company’s focus at that time was residential foundations, driveways, snow plowing, and small paving repairs.

Thru the late 90’s and early 2000’s, the company continued to add field employees, estimators, a construction manager, and several additional pieces of construction and paving equipment. Growth continued in the commercial and municipal construction side of the business including water, sewer, and drain installation, as well as full time residential and small commercial paving.

In 2005, Glidden purchased the property on New Portland Rd in Gorham, the company’s current business location, and built an office building, repair facility, and equipment parking area.

Since 2007, the company has added a paving manager, moved into large commercial, municipal, and MaineDOT paving and construction markets, and currently operates two construction crews, two paving crews, a fleet of dump trucks and commercial paving and excavating equipment, and over 40 employees at the peak of the season.
