​L.H. Bolduc specializes in driven piles (steel, timber and H-beam) and earth retention systems (steel sheeting and H-Beam and lagging).

Experience You Can Trust

LH Bolduc's biggest asset: Experienced individuals that take pride in their trade.

​​​According to the International Union of Piledrivers, the L.H Bolduc Co. is the oldest "piledriving company" in the US. Founded in 1879, Bolduc is celebrating 137 years in the piledriving industry. Bolduc firmly believes in the motto, "a driven pile is a tested pile," coined by the Piledriving Contractors Association (PDCA) and has chosen to remain true to this deep foundation method as well as driven steel sheet piling, H-pile, and timber lagging earth retention systems.  

While working in the upper midwest region over these many decades, Bolduc has become a trusted and reliable contractor to provide sound, cost-effective, and efficient foundation results. Our work is with private and public owners, developers and general contractors.

From the first crews to the present, our people are the most experienced and best at what we do.
