Our company, Rimon Drilling, enjoyed the co-operation with Down2earth for one of our biggest microtunneling projects in Israel. We are extremely satisfied with the collaboration, professionalism and the quality supplied.

Down2earth provided our company with a full range of support such as equipment supply, after sales and specialized jobsite personnel.

Another positive point was the good work atmosphere and the respectful personal contact between both teams.

The project was successfully achieved and I’m looking forward to continuing our prosperous relationship in the years to come as it shows to be a perfect win-win partnership in the microtunneling business.
