F W Huxter Groundworks & Civil Engineering Ltd. is a family owned and run company, started by Fred Huxter back in 2003. Originally called F W Huxter Plant Hire, it began with just one man and his machine.

Based in the heart of West Dorset, the Company has gradually expanded and diversified and is now able to offer a much wider range of Plant and Services. For an overview of what we do please look at our services page.

About Us.

Company Training Policy

We are very proud of our Company's success and reputation which has been built upon many years of customer satisfaction. This has been achieved through the high standards of our work, the reliability, skill and experience of our team.

All of our staff undergo regular training to the highest  possible industry standards ensuring that each team member has the experience and qualifications neccessary for their role in any given job. Many of our team members have been with us for a very long time, some working their way up from junior labourer to senior team leader over a period of several years.


Our Company Policy is to give all of our employees the opportunity to progress through the levels and we firmly believe that doing so helps to maintain their enthusiasm and commitment to the work. We have our own on site training centre where courses  are held throughout the year.

Company Profile.


Fred Huxter is the Managing Director and founder of the Company (pictured second from the left). Many other family members are among the staff including Lucy, his wife (Company Secretary) and two of Fred's brothers. Despite its size, the Company has retained its family feel and all members of the staff are hand picked by Fred himself, chosen for their experience, skill and work ethic. 

All junior or less experienced employees are trained and supervised by a senior team member, some of whom have over 35 years experience! 


We are exceptionally lucky to have such an amazingly dedicated and hard working team, without whom the continuing success of the company would not be possible.
