|History of Ditch Witch|
The Company That Launched An Industry…
In the late 1940s, Ed Malzahn, a college graduate with an engineering degree, had the idea to build a small compact trenching machine that could replace the “pick and shovel” work involved with installing residential utility services. By 1949, Ed succeeded in producing a workable compact trencher and the first seeds of the worldwide Ditch Witch organization were planted. Since that time, Fortune magazine has twice named the Ditch Witch compact trencher “one of the 100 best American-made products in the world.”
