Fred Getz was recruited to Siegmund Excavation & Construction four years ago when the company decided to venture back into logging. Fred began working in the woods when he was 14 years old, and officially started his first job at 18 working for Scott Allen Logging. After a year there, he moved on to Don Whitaker Logging. He began running shovel at the age of 27, and has been doing that ever since. Fred worked for Whitaker for 15 years, then Sword Logging for two years, before getting the call from Andrew Siegmund.
Growing up, Fred says he didn’t play sports or participate in school activities. Instead he just partied and raised hell. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping with his family. These days, Fred can be found riding his motorcycle every chance he gets. He still loves hunting, fishing and shooting, or just relaxing with his family and friends.
