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
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful job your team provided in the drilling and blasting for my Quarry. As you know, we faced what seemed to be insurmountable challenges including short timeframes, false stop-work orders from the code enforcement officer, unending complaints up and down the chain of command at your Company, politically and to DEC. Neighbors were difficult to deal with for house inspections. I could go on and on with the friction we incurred. Your team was professional, despite the neighbors being difficult, and documented everything accordingly. I want to thank you for getting involved and helping host a meeting with your team, my attorney and assisting me with what was required paperwork you needed from DEC to overcome issues with the Town. I also want to personally thank your Blaster in Charge for his professionalism. He always kept his composure and continued with the tasks at hand despite the negativism surrounding him. The blast was a success and I look forward to working with your organization in the future. A big thank you and may God bless you all."
