Ellingson Acquires Directed Technologies Drilling

Ellingson, a nationwide specialty trenchless construction contractor, acquired Directed Technologies Drilling, (DTD) a pioneer in the use of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) methods to mitigate soil and groundwater contamination and develop clean water supplies.

Since 1996, DTD has focused on the environmental applications of horizontal directional drilling. The company has perfected the specialized techniques needed to install and develop wells for subsurface remediation and water resources development. DTD leads the industry in installed footage of completed, operational wells and is committed to continual innovation and improvement of design and installation techniques.

This creates both environmentally and economically sustainable solutions for customers. In addition, HDD wells can be utilized as groundwater production wells, developing shallow or thin aquifers for irrigation, potable and industrial uses.

In its 50-year history, West Concord, Minn.-based Ellingson has built its business around the better utilization and management of water and underground infrastructure.

“Our growth goals are aggressive, and our focus is on being the industry leader in innovative trenchless construction solutions that provide added value to our customers,” said Jeremy Ellingson, chief operating officer. “The addition of DTD aligns with our vision, expands our overall offering and provides complementary capabilities to our existing water management, infrastructure management and engineering divisions.”

As a division of Ellingson, DTD now does business as Ellingson-DTD.
