Hemlock Directional was founded in 1994 as one of New England's first directional drilling companies. Ken had heard about the work being done with directional drilling, but until this point directional drilling was only being performed in the South. No one was willing to attempt directional drilling in the more aggressive soils of New England. With some extensive research, and the advancements in the technology, Ken decided it was time to put directional drilling to the test in New England.
It took some time for the idea of trenchless technology to take hold in the Northeast, but the business has grown steadily every year since it's inception. We are a full service utility installation contractor that is involved with all types of utilities including, but not limited to, water, sewer, electric, gas, and communications. As a full service contractor we employ a multitude of installation technologies including open cut trenching, pipe bursting, slip lining, jacking, horizontal auger boring and horizontal directional boring. Our primary function is directional boring but we also own and operate trenchers, moles, backhoes and other specialized equipment needed to complete many different types of projects. We believe that work should be done right the first time and will complete a project assessment prior to the beginning of a job to determine the most cost effective and feasible way of completing the project. We are proud of our history and encourage others to inquire about Hemlock Directional Boring.
