About Us

In 1986, after 25 years in the earthmoving industry, John Davison courageously launched a new South Australian earthmoving enterprise,  Davison Earthmovers. Since then, the company has been steadily building it’s capacity and reputation to become one of the most well-recognised and respected earthmovers in Adelaide, South Australia.

Davison Earthmovers is a wholly South Australian based, owned and operated industry entity offering earthmoving and construction services in the rail, commercial, industrial and civil sectors.

From our commencement with just two pieces of heavy plant, a small workshop and a home office, the company has grown to over 30 pieces of heavy plant, modern offices and systems of work supported by a large workshop and yard to service our needs.

Davison Earthmovers continually strives to develop and utilise innovative work practices and advances in technology to improve our efficiency and service proposition to our clients. We focus on a collaborative approach with clients with the aim of developing beneficial outcomes for them by working through project design and constructability issues/requirements.
