Dick Stutsman and Jerry Gerbaz
Stutsman-Gerbaz Earthmoving, Inc. was started in 1960 when Dick Stutsman and Jerry Gerbaz purchased a small earthmoving business in Aspen Colorado from Jim Hayes. Both Dick and Jerry, who were raised in The Roaring Fork Valley, realized the potential for growth and knew that there would be a growing need for earthmoving in the Valley.

The business started out small, only operating in the summers. During the winter Dick and Jerry could be found on Aspen Mountain working as lift operators on lift number three for The Aspen Skiing Company. As demand increased they began working year round to keep up with the valley’s need for excavation.

As the business grew, Dick and Jerry began taking on bigger projects. One such project was The Miners Building (a local hardware store) which at the time was one of the largest and deepest foundations to be excavated in Aspen. Today the Miners building stands as one of the many projects that is a testament to the quality of workmanship provided by Stutsman-Gerbaz.

Dick Stutsman and Jerry Gerbaz have since retired but Stutsman-Gerbaz, Inc. remains a family run business, that is just as dedicated now as it was when they first started, to a job well done. After all, perfection is our benchmark.
