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.

Just wanted to thank you and your team for a good job here at Elm Tree! It was a little rocky at first with breakdowns, but accommodations on your end were made to keep me on schedule. I also wanted to thank your guys for being safe, and not taking any chances with safety. We all know in this day and age that safety is #1. Communication is also key. Between yourself, Rick, and Tommy, not just on this site but others we have worked on, it's been good. Again, Thanks! See you on the next one.

I thought that I would take a moment to praise your team who has been working at Fishkill this year. MD&B has done a very good job keeping up with our rigorous schedule and has adapted well to our needs this year. In particular, when it came to shooting the largest and deepest shot I can remember, your team didn't back down (like I may have). They analyzed the increased depth, sent in the right support to evaluate offsite impacts, prepared the hole set up to address a large burden in front of the shot, and drilled and shot it without incident. In addition, when it came time to shoot it, MSHA showed up at the quarry for their quarterly inspection. Instead of calling off the shot, Todd and I felt confident enough in our preparation and your analysis that we shot it while MSHA was there. The MSHA inspector commented at how well run our blast routine was performed. The President of Thalle was amazed when he found out that I decided to shoot while MSHA was there. It was the first time he can remember that ever occurring, regardless of the size and complexity of the shot. So please pass on this message to your management, your blasters working at our site (Todd and Dennis in particular) and your support staff for their good work and diligence this year. It is much appreciated and makes my job that much easier and more enjoyable.

Thank you for the crew you sent to O Fairs Lane, Natick. This was a big undertaking and Maine Drilling & Blasting did a fantastic job. Hoip and the men were a real pleasure to work with. They were professional, detail-oriented, and communicated every step of the way. The neighborhood, as you know, was a real hornets' nest to deal with, and the Town of Natick cuts the blasting limits in half. With all of that, it never bothered or hindered Hoip. He just kept going strong right to the last day. We truly appreciate the great job that Hoip did. We look forward to working with Hoip and the crew in upcoming projects. Thank you.

Maine Drilling & Blasting did an exceptional job blasting at the Lockwood Hotel project, given the site location and sensitive utilities in the area. The blaster took all facts into consideration and kept the neighbors well-informed throughout the duration of work. The GC, owner, and McGee Construction were very pleased with the blasting operations.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the job you and your guys are doing at the Coy Rd. quarry. The communication between us, Chuck B. and Chris D. could not get any better. Even working with the driller has been great. This is a new and somewhat difficult project for all of us. Starting out with the access of the highwall, limited room to work around the edge of the face, and the never-ending amount of overburden to strip. I have worked around Chuck for several years now and never have a single concern when he shows up on blast days. I will admit I was a little uncomfortable when you told me you were sending another blaster to assist and be a lead blaster on site. However, after meeting Chris, talking with him and seeing his work, I now have that same comfort level that I do with Chuck. Thank you guys very much, and I'm looking forward to working with you guys for the rest of the season.
