I have known and worked with Griffiths Drilling for over 25 years, initially with Gordon Griffiths and then Melvyn Griffiths. It is great to see Mel progress from being a competent driller under his father’s tutelage, to build a successful company that has been recognised by the local community. He is always available to help solve investigation challenges. We are fortunate that Griffiths Drilling has been able to invest in some smart new equipment, which is helping them deliver our investigation projects to a higher quality, more quickly and more reliably. Mel understands the ground and the drilling conditions in Wellington well, and he has a can do attitude, which he has applied to getting projects done in the most trying conditions.
I would like to congratulate Melvyn Griffiths on the induction of Griffiths Drilling to the Wellington Regional Business Hall of Fame. This is a this well-deserved recognition.
This is no surprise given that Griffiths Drilling have been involved in investigating the ground for most major to small projects in the Wellington Region for over quarter of a century. Most importantly, this has helped us assure a solid foundation for our infrastructure and build environment.
