Directional Drilling Company NZ Limited (DDC)

Greg purchased his first drill in 2005.  Today DDC have a Ditchwitch JT30 and a Ditchwitch 922. 

The Drilling Company operates in the wider Canterbury region completing power, irrigation and fibre work in some of the most testing conditions and is well known for its own designed tooling that helps complete these projects. 

They still have a “can do” approach to the trying ground conditions. 

Utility Detection Services (UDS)

(a division of Greg Donaldson Contracting Limited)

With the cost to repair damage to existing services, along with danger to people in the surrounding area, it is important to ensure that existing underground services such as power and fibre are identified and located.   
Quite often there are no plans available of existing services, which is where UDS personnel can assist to locate/identify these by using up to date ground penetration radar and location equipment.  This work can be undertaken in urban, rural and private property.
