Drilling, blasting, and related services for construction, quarry and energy markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
Since 1966 we've performed over two million controlled blasts in Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic. No project is too big or small!
MD&B transitioned to employee ownership in 2004, resulting in greater individual responsibility in the work being produced.
Back in the old days, the blaster would puff on his cigar until it was red hot, touch it to the fuse and "run like hell."
Welcome to Maine Drilling & Blasting, your trusted breed since 1966. Hard Work, Honesty and Quality of Services. These are the principles on which our company was founded, and which our people continue to bring to every project and job site...whether that’s a 75-mile pipeline, a quarry, or a single house foundation or swimming pool.
—No job is too big, too small, or more important...
What Our Clients Say About Us
This I87 Rock Remediation project is a little different from the many I've done with Maine Drilling & Blasting, due to the fact its location is in the median between the Northbound and Southbound travel lanes and how close the rock is to the lanes. Besides the location, the formation of the rock is in many different directions and various stages of deterioration with soil seaming and large slip areas that are practically vertical. When the project was awarded, I knew that Maine Drilling & Blasting was a good contractor, and had very competent staff. I have worked with and have known them for years, and could always count on their knowledge, safety and professionalism to get the project completed. For this project, with all of its challenges, we would all have to step up our game, and step it up they did. They began the project by dissecting each proposed controlled blast and talking it through so we were all on the same page with every shot. They began blasting with planned conservative shots, and with every shot it was evident that they were understanding how the rock was reacting and how it needed to be shot to keep debris off the highway. The Thruway Authority was amazed with the high level of safety, production and professionalism. I know the Thruway Authority has plans to do more rock projects. Rifenburg Construction will be bidding on them and will have Maine Drilling & Blasting provide us with the high quality workmanship we desire."
