Horizontal Boring & Tunneling Co. is Exeter's largest employer. Brent Moore is the President of the company and has officially been with Horizontal Boring & Tunneling Co. since 1982, but prior to that he worked several years in the industry. Brent credits the employees with the successful growth of the company as the company now works in approximately sixteen different states a year.
Some of their work ensures that you will have good phone lines, water lines, sewer, drainage and electrical wherever you travel. That' s because the company does horizontal earth-boring. They install pipes under roads, interstates, highways to either move products like water or sewer or hold service or cable lines.
In order to accomplish this mission they use auger boring, pipe ramming, directional drilling, tunneling, micro-tunneling, pipe jacking and pilot tube micro-tunneling methods.
Their 95 employees work in Exeter at the main office, pipe yard and shop as well as on jobsites nationwide. Their pipe yard in Exeter sells steel pipe and feedlot fencing locally.
