Ed Malzahn was a part of a family who migrated to Oklahoma to escape the harsh winters of Minnesota. His family opened a blacksmith shop, which then became Charlie’s Machine Shop to address the family’s needs. The business prospered and with the advent of an oil boom the shop specialized in repairs for nearby oil fields. At that time, the process of installing residential utility services involved slow, tedious pick-and-shovel labor. Ed tried to develop a device that would ease the process, leading to the creation of a compact trencher, a prototype of what would be known as the DWP, which stood for Ditch Witch Power.
The machine was the first mechanized, compact service-line trencher developed for laying underground water lines between the street main and the house. It solved a major problem of utility contractors, as well as paved the way for the creation of the compact trencher industry. Today, the Ditch Witch company designs and manufactures a wide variety of high-quality underground construction equipment, which inlcudes trenchers, vibratory plows, pneumatic piercing tools, backhoes, electronic guidance and locating tools, and more, all of which are recognized worldwide for their rugged construction, ease of use, durability, and reliability.
