About Ditch Witch® of North Carolina


Ditch Witch of North Carolina has had the same phone number for 52 years. The company was started in 1970 by Paul and Ginny Starks. Paul was a former grade school principal that had a passion for working with people with a tremendous work ethic. Ditch Witch of North Carolina grew quickly due to the new Ditch Witch trenching and plowing equipment that revolutionized the underground installation process. But what separated this new business was Paul’s passion for his customers and the service that he backed up the Ditch Witch Brand.   This is the legacy that he left for the next generation to build upon. Cliff Starks and Travis Wilkey took over as owners in 1990 and in 2016 Travis became the sole owner.  Ditch Witch of North Carolina has locations in Garner, Kernersville and Jacksonville. 


Ditch Witch of North Carolina is one of the top Ditch Witch Dealers in the world. They have achieved Ditch Witch’s highest awards for marketing and service these last 52 years. Travis leads his team to continue to nurture the culture that is truly our legacy, passion for our customer and the service to support our equipment.


“I am most proud of the fact that our employees have bought in to this legacy and culture.  They are the ones that will continue to make Ditch Witch of North Carolina a place where people want to do business”.  –Travis Wilkey, President/Owner of Ditch Witch of North Carolina
