Management Team


Simon Healey

General Manager

Digga Excavations Manager, Simon Healey had a vision and believed that the construction industry required a can do attitude and approach. This approach has allowed Digga to grow to what is has become today. Simon has over 20 years’ experience working in the construction and civil construction industry. Through hard work and dedication, the business has grown from one truck and an excavator, to an extensive fully serviced fleet of over 250 individual plant items.

Brad Spilsbury


The Digga Excavations Workshop has undergone substantial development and change over the last 5 years. An instrumental figure in this period of change has been Brad Spilsbury our Workshop Manager.

Brad and his team of high achieving mechanics/technicians have proven their worth, being able to manage a very extensive and varied fleet.
