About Basin Construction & Drain Tile
Our Company History
Dwight Kopman started working in construction in high school and started Kopman Builders a few years later.
After 17+ years of building, Dwight became intrigued by field drainage and the growing need in eastern South Dakota. After a couple years of research, Dwight and his wife Stacy started Basin Construction & Drain Tile.
In January of 2012, Basin started out with a self-propelled WOLFE 400 tile plow, a few pieces of support equipment, and a crew of eight. By 2016 Basin had grown to run a crew of twenty-eight and two WOLFE plows.
Basin has now grown into a well-diversified company offering multiple services: Construction, Drain Tile, Excavation, and Aggregates.
Basin strives to develop mutually rewarding relationships with its employees, customers and the surrounding community. Keeping safety foremost we strive for the highest quality in workmanship while honoring our commitments and working with integrity and honesty.
Basin aims to help farmers by improving the land, increasing the area yields and therefore benefiting the lives of the farmers which pumps economic rewards back into the local economy benefiting the company and its employees.
