Brent Bowdon has sold his Patagonia based business, DM Excavating, to Rumco, a heavy construction company based in Phoenix. Bowdon, whose company has been contracted with AMI, said “It was the greatest opportunity for my employees, and it guarantees
their future employment. Rumco has some good environmental contracts with AMI, which guarantee about 2 ½ years of employment.” DM Excavating had 23 employees, who were allowed to transfer their seniority to the new company. “That is huge,” Bowdon said. “I
made sure my employees had an excellent package.”

Bowdon is still active in his other businesses, including the RV park and doing smaller dirt work projects. He is also available for up to a year as a consultant for Rumco. As for his future plans, Bowdon is looking forward to devoting more time to the Patagonia Fire Department. “Which I dearly love,” he said.
