PB Drilling was founded by Paul Blackledge in 1989 with one cable percussive rig and quickly grew. Sadly Paul passed away in February 2012 and his wife Nicola Blackledge continued to run the company.?

The company has built up an excellent reputation within the industry and is now one of the most dominant suppliers of drilling and site investigation services nationwide .

The aim of our company is to provide a professional, reliable, efficient and cost-effective service carried out by competent, qualified and experienced staff.

Our crews specialise in cable percussive drilling but we also have a crew dedicated to window sampling and hand held window sampling.

We work for many of the leading geotechnical and site investigation companies and have worked on many major contracts throughout the UK.

The health and safety of our staff and indeed of any person within their working vicinity is of the utmost importance to us and we do everything we possibly can to be proactive regarding health and safety issues. Our staff are adequately trained to N.V.Q. Level 2 in Land Drilling and are competent and confident in their jobs.
