Vermeer is on the search for the “Ultimate Horizontal Directional Drilling Crew” and selected our customer, Ulmer Contracting, as 1 of 8 finalists in North America!

Vermeer launched the Ultimate Operator contest to celebrate horizontal directional drill (HDD) operators, recognize their impact on the world and identify the ultimate HDD operator.  Vermeer wants to showcase the importance of the entire HDD crew through the Ultimate Crew contest to identify the best directional drill crews across North America.

“Ulmer Contracting was selected as the only Canadian Ultimate Crew and we are very happy to support them. Chuck Ulmer is a passionate leader who appreciates great customer service, teamwork, quality equipment and safety. He is a very loyal Vermeer equipment customer of ours and we are very proud to be their preferred equipment dealer” stated Don Castron, Director, Vermeer BC.

The top crews – selected by votes online – will advance to compete in an ultimate HDD skills competition Sept 29 – Oct 1, 2015 at ICUEE 2015 in Louisville, Kentucky at the Vermeer booth.  There, the finalists will put their drilling skills to the test to prove why they should be named as the “Ultimate Crew.”  

The crew that demonstrates their superior drill skills, strength and endurance at ICUEE will be named North America’s Ultimate Crew!  The 2015 Ultimate Crew will win the use of a new Vermeer D24x40 Series II for twelve months, be featured in ad materials in key underground publications and have the chance to test future Vermeer innovations and products, sharing their experiences along the way.

Voting is available at navigatornation.com until August 31, 2015. Congratulations to Ulmer Contracting and the Vermeer BC team!
