HERE’S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
"... have an enthusiastic can do attitude, and they have a wide variety of modern equipment..."
Over the last five years I have worked with Mel and his team on a wide variety of infrastructure and building projects. The Griffith’s team have an enthusiastic can do attitude, and they have a wide variety of modern equipment to suit each individual site. I have also been impressed with Mel’s commitment to his local clients, during a period where there has been considerable opportunities elsewhere in the industry.
"...good people who take pride in their work and consistently go the extra mile when needed..."
I have known Mel Griffiths and his team for a decade now and am constantly impressed with their positive can-do attitude and approach to their work. Mel has surrounded himself with good people who take pride in their work and consistently go the extra mile when needed which is always appreciated. Finally, it is positive to see Griffiths investing in quality new equipment, keeping up to date with testing technology and supporting their local community – I would not hesitate to recommend them.
"...Griffiths Drilling has been delivering us positive and productive experiences for over 20 years."
Mel and his team at Griffiths Drilling has been delivering us positive and productive experiences for over 20 years. We find that Griffiths Drilling provides us with a high level of professionalism and on site operational experience which in turn helps support seamless and successful geotechnical investigations. When we require quick and thorough project initiation, we have no doubt that the team at Griffiths Drilling will work very closely with our team to ensure schedule requirements and deliverables are successfully met.
"... always available to help solve investigation challenges."
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.
