The Crossing Company Inc., a leading provider of trenchless services in Canada, has completed a complementary acquisition.
The Crossing Company has acquired The HDD Co., located in Sacramento, Calif. This acquisition gives The Crossing Company immediate access to the large volume of pipeline projects currently under way in the United-States. The HDD Co. was started in 1998 by Neil Swope, who will remain the president of the U.S. division, based in Southern California. Swope’s extensive horizontal directional drilling experience, which includes shore approaches and large municipal projects, will be of great value to The Crossing Company’s group of companies and clients, a press release said. Swope will report to Ryan J. MacLean, president of The Crossing Company.
The Crossing Company group of companies now includes, The Crossing Company, Rampro, The Crossing Company LRD & The HDD Co. The combined group now operates 14 large HDD rigs and a fleet of tunnelling, augering and pipe ramming equipment.
