Some words from our clients
Each month, Maine Drilling & Blasting internally recognizes projects for achieving the highest safety standards integrated with operational excellence, often in the face of unique, difficult, and/or multi-dimensional challenges. The intent of this program is to promote and develop a consistently high standard for the entire Maine Drilling & Blasting Team.
Receiving one of these Job of the Month Awards happens only with careful attention to detail and the willingness to set a higher standard. Recognized projects demonstrate the pride and integrity of our co-workers in their work, as seen through their eyes, and the eyes of management, and our customers.
Nominations come from within the Company, through detailed applications that attest to the project meeting our organizational criteria.
Our customers' satisfaction is key, so an important part of the application is a customer statement, to ensure that the project was not only a success for MD&B, but also for our customer.
We're proud to share customer statements regarding some select job of the months.

Dennis and the team from Maine Drilling & Blasting were on fire. The job had a slow start from DEC and Maine took the reins, putting the hammer down, getting the job done as efficiently and effectively as possible. It was a pleasure to work with a great group of guys! Thank you.

I just wanted to put out there that we are more than impressed with the crew you sent out to blast the trench rock for our sanitary sewer pipe installation. The crew showed up on time and throughout the day demonstrated professional and safe work ethics. As I'm sure you know, safety is the largest focus on any job big or small, and not once was your crew ever an issue. We look forward to working with you in the future!

I am very satisfied with the performance of the crew you had out at the Highland job in NY. The blasting had to be performed adjacent to an existing high-pressure gas main line, and at one point, blasted within 100 feet of this line. I never received any complaints or concerns from the gas company, nor the General Contractor. This crew performed all of the work in less time than expected and within all the safety guidelines, as well as maintaining a professional relationship with all field personnel for all parties. I will be highly recommending that Northern Construction utilize MD Drilling & Blasting for all our future projects. Thank you.

I would like to thank you and your crew for a job well done! As we are all aware, National Grid puts safety above all/any other activities. Maine Drilling & Blasting safety procedures and implementation by your crews met and exceeded all the requirements of Manafort Brothers, Inc. and all the safety demands of National Grid. As you are aware, National Grid - as a rule - did not use blasting as a means to remove rock. Blasting was thought of and labeled too great a risk and opted to use hoe rams instead. Because of the inefficiencies of hoe ramming, large amounts of rock (24,000 CY in this case), National Grid decided to take a chance and use blasting for the rock removal. Because of your crew's extraordinary efforts to maintain a safe environment, I have been told that National Grid will now use blasting when it is appropriate. National Grid's change in attitude to blasting is a direct testament to you and your crew's professionalism coupled with the safety culture of Maine Drilling & Blasting. It was a pleasure to work with you and your firm, and we look forward to many other projects with you.
