Welcome to the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce and our mountain paradise!
Since 1983, the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's mission of strengthening, promoting and serving its member businesses has positively benefited the entire region and local quality of life. We envision a community where businesses can grow and where people want to raise their families. The Angel Fire Chamber represents over 200 members who employ approximately 1,000 workers. These workers account for millions of dollars in economic impact in Angel Fire and the surrounding areas of Northern New Mexico. This is accomplished without tax dollars, as the Angel Fire Chamber is supported strictly by membership revenues. Serving as a unified voice, the Chamber advocates for pro-business issues affecting member businesses on the local, state, and national levels.
We are proud to feature news about our region and our member businesses in the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's exclusive "I Know Jo" Campaign. This campaign started as a way for our President/CEO, Jo Mixon, to get to know the membership in 2011. It has, over the past years, become one of the favorite news/advertising events in Angel Fire. The catch phrase being, "I Know Jo, do you?" She visits a different Chamber member to learn about their business. She then shares information in a story she writes for our Weekly Chamber Monday Memo e-Blast. This e-Blast is sent out to thousands of people on our mailing list.
Moore Excavation says,
"I Know Jo, do you?"
Jo on work site with Kyle Moore
When a new home, business or any other facility is built, Moore Excavation is the man you want first and last on your job! I was on site while Kyle Moore and his crew were completing a back fill on a new home site. He explained to me, when contracted, the first thing they do is site prep. They clear the land of trees, rocks or any other obstacle and prepare the site for the build. Next, for this particular job, they cut a flat for the building and will dig footers. They can also dig for all the underground utilities and the septic system. After they are finished, the concrete guys come in to fill the footers and lay the foundation. Once more, Moore Excavators arrives to do the back fill on the entire area so that the building contractor can come in for the actual build.
When the build is complete, again Moore Excavators will come back for the final clean-up and to put in the driveway. Most of this, I did not know. I learned that excavation services are much more detailed than just digging holes! Moore Excavation will do residential or commercial work, no job is too small or too large. It includes general excavation, septic systems, driveways, gravel, retaining walls, check for underground leaks, and snow removal. Kyle has 20 years of experience, for all of your excavation needs. He loves serving the Moreno Valley and all of its owners.
In conversation with Kyle, he shared with me that he is a fourth generation Moreno Valley local, meaning he is raising a fifth generation family. His great Grandparents settled in Black Lake, well before Angel Fire was ever on the map. His families homestead, where his mother was born, is still partially standing today.
Deciding not to leave the Moreno Valley after graduating, Kyle worked for other excavation companies and in the winter season, he worked nights at the Angel Fire Resort, grooming the ski runs and blowing snow. After becoming a family man, working nights was hard. He wanted to be able to spend more time with his wife and daughters, ages 4 and 14. So when the opportunity arose in 2013, he and wife Cindy decided to take that leap of faith and go into business for themselves. Cindy is the office manager and Kyle does the hard labor. Cindy said, "He has always loved big equipment and playing in the dirt! So we made it work." She told me he won first place in a Heavy Equipment Rodeo in Albuquerque. He is in his element. Going into business for yourself can be very scary. But with the support of the community and lot of hard work, it has been a good thing for the Moore's. Plus Kyle is living every little boys dream, making a living while playing in the dirt!
