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 would like to take a moment to say thank you to several of your crew members that preformed what I considered to be a very difficult and delicate operation. In Cohasset, Mass. on top of an ocean-bound cofferdam your crew was tasked with drilling through an underwater concrete Tremie into bedrock some 20 feet below sea level, installing Tremie Anchors and grouting in the dry while unable to see what they were working on, and balancing on tiny walkways over open water. Obviously, no big deal!
I viewed this as an extremely challenging operation consisting of critical safety protocols, precision location, precision elevation and top-notch Quality Control.
On the drill was an obvious "Old Pro", and I mean that in the humblest of ways, as it was obvious to anyone that Bruce D. has done this before and made it look like child's play. A true professional at his job.
Your Foreman, TJ L., could not have been more pleasant or professional especially with his level of consciousness while executing his task. His eyes on safety constantly in a very precarious position while orchestrating his crew and maintaining a level of Quality Control that was spot on. He accomplished his task with absolute accuracy and the final product was as constructed exactly as designed. I could not have asked for better, as TJ hit a bullseye!
And not to be left out of the compliments is Shawn L., laborer. Shawn was a joy to have on site and was obviously an integral part of this crew. He preformed all his requested tasks professionally and admirably.
Personally, I will recommend to MIG or anyone else that they utilize Maine Drilling & Blasting. And personally, this crew is welcome on any job that I am charged with. They truly were a pleasure to work with, and in my world that does not come often! Thank you."
