Looking For a Qualified Underground Construction Company for Your Next Project?


Adam Taylor the founder of HDD, started in the directional drilling industry in 1995 pioneering the directional drill technology in the western states. After six years the company Adam was working for, was bought out by a big corporation. He didn’t find the big corporation view of things appealing. He believed in the smaller, more personable companies that take an actual interest in all of their customers and provide the highest industry standard on every project. With this mindset and determination, HDD was founded in 2001 with just one directional drill rig and one employee. Just two short years later HDD added two more directional drills; since then the hard-work and impeccable job performance has given HDD the opportunity to continue to grow and hire more employees.

In 2007 HDD bought Willco Farwest, which had been in business since 1977, becoming HDD Willco.  The owner of Willco Farwest wanted to retire but also didn’t want his company’s values to be lost to some big corporation. After years of working together, the owner of Willco Farwest, knew that his business values and standards of quality would not be lost with HDD. Through this acquisition of Willco Farwest, they gained the ability for Auger Boring, Pipe Ramming, Tunneling, and 36”+ large diameter installs. These were primarily used for water and sewer casing and grade boring but now have been applied to a large range of jobs including the installation of utilities such as gas, power cables, and telecommunication conduits. HDD Willco currently has 15 drills, 7 Auger Bores, and two large vacuum trucks. We have grown from the one drill, one-man start-up to a leader in the underground construction industry with over 60 employees, built on honest hard-working philosophies.

HDD Willco is constantly looking for ways to improve and adapt to be the leader in the industry. Our company knows that underground construction technology is constantly advancing and we are always striving to be the best in the business with the knowledge and experience to back it up. HDD Willco’s founders continue to use their hometown values while also being a pioneer in the drilling industry. Our project managers and owners still take the time to meet with our customers, so they can know exactly what their needs are and how best to provide it for them. HDD Willco is a family oriented business made up of reliable family and friends who are committed to their jobs and their communities. Above all else we still believe that a handshake still means something in this business.

Underground Tunneling Services


When it comes to longevity, there are few companies that can match the experience and track record of the HDD Willco. We have successfully completed a numerous projects throughout the United States.

Tunneling is the excavation and installation of tunnel supports at the tunnel face by underground workers. It’s effective in soils above and below the water table and can deal with cobbles, boulders, and hard rock, quicker and more efficiently than other types of excavation.

Choose this when there are unknowns, such as buried utilities or difficult soil conditions, and you want a low risk option.


Auger Boring


Auger boring simultaneously jacks a casing forward while removing the spoil via rotating auger blades.

Pipe ramming


This method uses pneumatic percussive blows to drive a steel casing through the ground.

Uses pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and remove soil.
