Established in 1981, Puglsey Blasting Services provided drilling and blasting services in Sydney, Central Coast and Newcastle.
In 2011, the name of the company was changed to reflect its new beginnings as Premier Drill and Blast Pty Ltd with Directors Paul Hallam and Roy Barclay significantly improving efficiency, quality and customer focus.
As Premier Drill and Blast continued to win new contracts, it also upgraded its fleet of drills as part of its recent improvement project.
