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.

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.

It was a pleasure working with you and your team at Brookhaven of Lexington. The leadership provided by Matt and Andy led to a successful project that was on time and on budget. My guys really enjoyed working with Hoip, Shawn, Domenic and Paul. Maine Drilling did everything they said they would and then some. Hoip was great in dealing with the abutters and your whole team was excellent at communicating with the town. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

The crew who installed and grouted rock anchors did an excellent job. They had to put up with difficult conditions in the SBR excavation. Their workmanship was spot-on. They took the time to plan ahead to overcome the conditions.

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.
