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
All too often our hard work goes unnoticed, both in business and in life. It seems many people find the negative easier than they find the positive. (If you Google it, it's actually a 21:1 ratio). With that said, I was cleaning up for the winter shutdown and realized I never took the time to acknowledge and thank you, and your crew, for the work that was completed on the Middlesex bridge project. To be honest, your crew completed the work so fluently, I hardly knew they were onsite. That is really speaking boldly when you consider the field conditions. I am truly impressed with how you handled the blasting through the steep terrain, the active railroad, the interstate and heavy traveled state route, all within a 50-foot radius. Just a hats-off to your field guys! (Your knowledge and experience really is second to none in the field, and combined with your "Get it done" attitude, you make a great team to work with.) So I would like to be sure and officially say thanks for the professional display of work that your crew showed in Middlesex this fall. In the last 5 years of our partnership, we have had many "high risk" projects, whether it be terrain, schedule, environmental, or public safety. I will say it is always easier when facing the task at hand with people who have the "get it done" and "know how" attitude. So while we are in the slow season of 2017, I wanted to be sure that your hard work did not go unnoticed and we thank you. J.A. McDonald is looking forward to what has already been a great start to 2017 working with Maine Drilling & Blasting."
