Leading the Way

Michels is regarded as the North American leader in Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), and we are determined to stay on top. Our record-setting drills are supported by an unrivaled fleet of 20 large rigs with up to 1.2 million pounds of drilling thrust/pulling power.

Michels has successfully completed HDD crossings in all 50 states, Canada, along the U.S.-Canada and U.S.-Mexico borders, and internationally. Our highly respected HDD staff includes some of the most knowledgeable, talented and experienced leaders in the industry who work together to set industry records, and to develop new methods and design and fabricate equipment to expand the possibilities for using HDD in increasingly challenging situations.
