Our Story

Leadership Team Core Values

Decades of Dirt

If you live or work in North Texas, chances are pretty good that you have lived on, worked on, walked on, played on, or driven on earth that has been prepared by a Vilhauer team member. Our experienced team of Earth Specialists has successfully completed projects from one end of the Region to the other... and beyond.

But it’s not all just projects and bottom lines... it’s people.


Relationship is at the heart of Vilhauer Enterprises, and the heart of Vilhauer Enterprises is found in Chani and Rod Vilhauer, after whom the company is named.

A Strong Foundation

Our company was formed July 2011 and married two entities, resulting in a team with more than 100 years of business experience. Jerry Gibson was introduced to Rod and Chani Vilhauer and our team was significantly expanded to aggressively enter the site development market in the North Texas region. Jerry brought two successful partners, Mike Smith and Charlie Miller, and they created MSG Holdings as financing entity for Vilhauer Enterprises establishing lines of credit for purchasing capital equipment. Favorable financing has been obtained for profitable growth. Our team is prepared to take on any task financially and operationally.

Strategically Moving Forward

We believe in the market and think its going to stay strong over the next decade… that’s why we have relationships and partnership arrangements with Original Equipment Manufacturers, Deere, Cat, Komatsu, and others, in order to refresh our fleet on normal usage basis.

Our Bottom Line

Under the leadership of Vilhauer Enterprises, our team is taking site development service to new levels. Now partnered with 100+ years of business expertise, financial strength, solid infrastructure, and experienced management, our passion is to serve our clients out of relationship, and deliver the best quality product with value that exceeds expectations and keeps our Clients coming back time and time again.


Standard Pacific Homes

Our company is a nationwide builder, based in California with divisions throughout the country. Texas, Colorado, Arizona, the Carolinas, Florida and California. Excavation is one of the most important aspects of any residential development. We look for a “go to” excavation contractor in every job that we do. What stands out for me with Vilhauer Enterprises is their ability to meet and exceed our expectations on every level. The experience they bring to the table and the quality of work that their team performs makes the decision easy. They’ve done nothing but good work for us.

Chip Boyd - Director of Land Development

Adolfson & Peterson Construction

What we look for in our business is a true partner...a subcontractor who brings value to the table beyond the work that they perform for us out in the field. We had never worked with Vilhauer before. But, what was intriguing to us happened in our first meeting. Vilhauer immediately came to the table with value propositions for the project that benefitted our project as a whole and not just any individual team member. That was a key factor for us selecting Vilhauer for our project. Combine that with their performance and you can understand why we have continued to use them on multiple projects ever since.

Bob Lemke - Project Executive

Satterfield & Pontikes Construction

Vilhauer performed on two of our Walmart projects. One of the projects had a very unique, very difficult earthwork package. These guys came in and understood the job and hit the ground running. It was a complex site. It was a rock site. There was a 30 foot rock cut. A lot of fill. A lot of retaining walls to hold the site together. It was a large site. It was obvious to us that Vilhauer understood the scope of the project and how we needed it built. Vilhauer just came in and knocked it out. They are certainly a sub we can depend on at the end of the day to perform the job correctly.

Team Connor Childhood Cancer Foundation

TeamConnor’s purpose is to serve families, build awareness, and raise funds for research to help cure childhood cancer. Their organization continues to work tirelessly so that no child will have to suffer as Connor Cruse, the foundation’s inspirational catalyst, did.

Today, there are many children like Connor... children and families that have exhausted their standard treatment protocol and were not cured of cancer. More dollars means more research and more treatments available for children with cancer, ultimately finding the cure.

Vilhauer Enterprises is grateful to wholeheartedly support this great work.
