Company History

The most common question we have been asked over the years with the company is “What’s a Yenter?” Just to clear this up, Yenter is a family name. The Company was started in Golden, Colorado by John Yenter. He started the company in his home with his sons Marty, Russ, and Tim. The company name at that time was Yenter and Sons Blasting.

The company was sold and changed hands in 1992 and became Yenter Companies Inc. In 1998 the company was purchased by it’s employees and became an employee owned business.


The name remains the same simply out of respect for our founder,  the brand recognition, and the reputation of excellence that the name carries. We are proud of our history and how far we have come as a company.

Since its founding in 1974, Yenter Companies, Inc. has earned a reputation as an industry leader in technical drilling and blasting. Our services also include high scaling (technical climbing), as well as design and construction of rock and soil stabilization systems, retaining walls, and tunnel rehabilitation and improvement.
