Drilling, blasting, and related services for construction, quarry and energy markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
Since 1966 we've performed over two million controlled blasts in Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic. No project is too big or small!
MD&B transitioned to employee ownership in 2004, resulting in greater individual responsibility in the work being produced.
Back in the old days, the blaster would puff on his cigar until it was red hot, touch it to the fuse and "run like hell."
Welcome to Maine Drilling & Blasting, your trusted breed since 1966. Hard Work, Honesty and Quality of Services. These are the principles on which our company was founded, and which our people continue to bring to every project and job site...whether that’s a 75-mile pipeline, a quarry, or a single house foundation or swimming pool.
—No job is too big, too small, or more important...
What Our Clients Say About Us
I wanted to reach out and let you know how well your blasting crew did at the UNH
Spaulding Hall project. From day one, the plan we submitted to UNH was followed
perfectly. The University had research equipment that they felt could be damaged by
vibration. They gave us a fifteen-day period where the equipment would be shut down to
allow your crew to do the blasting work. Blasting was completed in seven days with your
crew starting work as early as 6am (under light towers) to meet the specific slotted blast
times when students were outside in the fewest numbers. MD&B worked efficiently and
with safety as the number one priority. Your crew blasted up to 6 feet of depth in hard
Granite rock as close as 20 feet away from an existing building making adjustments as
needed to keep vibrations at an acceptable level. Thank you for another safe and swift
