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.

Kubricky Construction has been under contract with Maine Drilling & Blasting for our Middlebury EWP3(2) contract in Middlebury, VT. Our project consists of construction of a launching pit for a Small Boring Unit for construction of new drainage system. The Launch Pit is a 40' diameter x 37' deep hole that was blasted into the existing rock in downtown Middlebury. The launch pit location is in extreme close proximity to existing structures including the Bank of Middlebury, the Middlebury Post Office and the St. Stephens Episcopal Church that was built in 1827. The face of the closest building was only 48' away from perimeter of the shaft. The rock was removed over the course of 18 blasts in four vertical lifts that were about 9' tall each. The location for the perimeter of the 40' diameter hole was extremely accurate, within 6". MD&B installed 17 rock dowels on the vertical face as we proceeded with our blasting to the finish grade. Once the blasting was completed, MD&B then installed more than 4,500 SF of rock netting around the perimeter for safety protection. The MD&B team was extremely safety conscious and very professional to deal with. Their hard work and attention to detail made this project a success for the traveling public, KCC and MD&B. We look forward to working with you and your team again in the near future for another successful project.

I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that your team servicing our quarry in Whitehall has worked safely and productively all season. As you are aware, we have dramatically increased production this year. The pre-season production review we had with you this past spring worked well in that your Team have stayed ahead of our production needs. We, at Azzil Granite Materials, appreciate your approach to safety and look forward to working with you past the 2018 season.

We appreciate the extra effort you folks made to get the last one on the ground. I know the access was a little tougher than normal and the 5:30 PM shot time can make a long day even longer. In any case, the gang did a great job and the shot came out the way we like it. Thanks, keep up the good work.

I would like to thank you and your drillers and blasters with the Weiss market project in Martinsburg, WV. From start of the project to the near finishing, the work that was performed on site was at high level. We worked through a very wet spring. Working together went great I thought. Also, working together on the rolling stops on I-81 went great, with no issues at all. As we're near the end of the drilling and blasting operation, once again I THANK YOU AND YOUR CREWS, AND HOPE TO WORK WITH YOU IN FUTURE.

Maine Drilling & Blasting took on an extremely difficult and challenging project in New Castle County for Kuhn Construction Company. All of the drilling and blasting was performed within a twenty-seven foot deep cofferdam, and most blasting contractors did not want to attempt this project due to the difficulties involved. Maine Blasting took on the project and supplied all necessary manpower and equipment to successfully complete the required blasting work in a timely and professional manner.

We'd like to congratulate Maine Drilling & Blasting for a great job done on our tank site. The crew was excellent. They were highly professional, diligent, good to deal with, and fast. The Orchard Owners and Tri-Town Water District both agreed that the work went very well. The work consisted of shooting a tank base of approximately 105 feet in diameter, with cuts ranging from 12 to 20 feet, with 1 on 1.5' backslopes out of the cut. The approximate quantity was 8000cyds, including the staging area for the tank construction company. With the basic layout and cuts indicated, Cody and group went for it. Consistent drilling and production shots meant that MD&B were finished a week ahead, with a trench rock shot on the way down the hill last day to wrap up. The only time Cody had to call was to let me know the next shot was pending, which was a great help to me. Thanks to all at MD&B for everything.
