ETTI a finalist for contractor of year award


LISBON FALLS — Enterprise Trenchless Technologies Inc., a directional drilling and utility construction contractor in Lisbon Falls, has been nominated by Equipment World Magazine and Caterpillar Equipment for 2013 Contractor of the Year.

A group of 12 contractors from across the country are chosen each year as finalists. One will be awarded Contractor of the Year.

This award recognizes those companies who exemplify the highest standards of construction professionals: business acumen, equipment management expertise, attention to safety, and community involvement.

Each of the finalists receives a trip to Las Vegas in March to participate in an industry round table and awards banquet, where the 2013 Contractor of the Year will be named. Each contractor will also be featured in the pages of Equipment World Magazine.

ETTI was founded by Jim Kelly in 1995. His son, Scott Kelly, took over the company in 1996. Today, the company employs 30 and has also expanded to more than just directional drilling services, now providing natural gas contracting, utility construction, pipe fusing, utility locating, and vacuum excavation.
