B&T has been crowned Vermeer’s “Ultimate Crew”

At the center of the Vermeer booth located outside at the ICUEE convention, B&T was able to complete the drilling course with the fastest recorded time to win Vermeer’s “Underground Showdown”!

B&T also got a nice shout-out from in an article about the Underground Showdown.


- How B&T got into the “Ultimate Crew” competition -

B&T wrote an essay as to why we have the “Ultimate Crew” and the essay was selected by a panel of judges to move on to the semi-finalist round. With only 8 crews remaining, Vermeer sent a crew that taped and edited a video for the public to vote on. After three months of voting, B&T made it to the final round, the “Underground Showdown”, which took place in Louisville, KY at the ICUEE Convention on September 29.

After the drilling competition in Louisville, B&T will continue to work close with Vermeer, providing feedback and suggestions on drills, tooling and locating equipment as necessary. B&T will also be featured in Vermeer advertisements, an online video series and will represent Vermeer as the Ultimate Crew for one year. With the hardest working drill crews in the world, B&T definitely has what it takes to be crowned Vermeer’s Ultimate Crew!
