Our expansion into directional drilling

Vermeer 20/22 Directional Drill

JUNE 2015: McLeod Rail Update:

McLeod Rail is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of EBC.

EBC is a directional drilling business servicing the telecommunications and utilities sectors.

The EBC acquisition increases our civil capabilities to include:

  • Directional drilling
  • Vertical drilling
  • Trenching
  • Non destructive digging
  • Service location
  • Traffic management

McLeod Rail looks forward to providing our existing clients with these new civil and directional drilling capabilities within the rail environment, including railway signalling, power and asset relocation projects.

We are also excited about the opportunity to build on EBC's enviable twenty year history of safety, quality and excellent client relationships. We are confident we will provide the EBC client base with additional capacity to deliver larger projects within the telecommunications and utilities sectors. We can also provide construction blasting services when required.

EBC personnel hold both rail and civil competencies and qualifications, allowing us to provide a complete project solution.
