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.

In response to your question on how everything went here in Norwood this year, I feel as if it went very well. Both Paul and Dave have very good communication with me when on site, and are very safety-oriented. Paul has done a great job scheduling the drill and staying ahead of production. Ray, as always, was able to get production drilling while maintaining his drill, as well. Thank you!

On behalf of Tree House Brewing Company, I would like to commend the Maine Drilling & Blasting crew for exceptional work during the drilling and blasting scope of our warehouse project. Mike, Paul, John, and Shawn took every precaution necessary to ensure that all hazards were mitigated, and communicated clearly and concisely when blasting was taking place. At Tree House, every day brings new coordination challenges, and attention to detail is the key success. Tree House is proud to call Maine Drilling & Blasting a partner in the construction of our warehouse, and we applaud Mike, Paul, John, and Shawn for their hard work. Thank you, very much, and good luck in future endeavors.

I am writing you in response to the work you completed at the Harriman surge tower in Readsboro, VT with us this summer. The fourteen rock anchors were in a very constricted area and required a lot of collaboration between MD&B and BCC. Your crew worked seamlessly with our crew to complete the scope of work; our site supervisor had nothing but positive comments about working with your crew. The project had many challenges and every problem encountered was faced equally by everyone involved and a solution was agreed upon by all in an efficient manner. Any issues in the field, with equipment, materials or anything was tackled by both companies, no matter whose issue it was. It is very nice to have that working relationship with your crew and we appreciate that tremendously. Great River Hydro (the owner) had nothing but good things to say about how the work was conducted. We wanted to reach out and say thank you for your help with completing this challenging project. I look forward to working with MD&B in the future.

It was a pleasure having your crews on site to do the blasting at Windy Heights. They did an outstanding job letting residents know when the blasting would take place. Residents were notified by Maine Drilling & Blasting having a representative go door to door and speak with each resident. They also gave plenty of notice to myself and the developer. Safety was always top priority. Josh did a great job communicating not only the blasting schedule but the sequence he would be blasting to keep my crews moving forward. I hope in the future YEC uses Maine Drilling & Blasting. Working with a responsible, reputable, safe company makes the dangerous task of blasting a lot easier. Thanks again.

On behalf of the Allan Myers Team, I would like to acknowledge your team's performance on our Waterside project this month. When we reached out to your team to help us with the challenge we faced on this project, MDB stepped up to the plate ready to go. Your team's positive attitude and drive to better the situation has had a major impact on the project's success. What looked like a monumental task at the beginning with no good starting point, has been transformed into a smooth operation. This project had the cards stacked against us, between the geology of the job, schedule, work areas, and the fact we had to complete it with a 200,000 sf building going up next to us. It took a large amount of planning and a high level of detail within your operation, not normal to the industry. Your team met the challenge on all fronts. From detailed drill logs allowing us to blast stacked boulders, complicated shot layouts, and more blast mats on a site than I have seen in many years, you guys made it happen! Please thank your crews for a job well done. Your group performs a step above the competition when it comes to job performance, production, professionalism, safety, and taking on the challenges others say can't be done. I appreciate all the hard work and look forward to the next one.
