For forty years, Akkerman has developed, manufactured and supported quality pipe jacking and tunneling equipment that accurately installs a variety of underground infrastructure. Over the years, we have introduced our manned pipe jacking, microtunneling, guided boring and earth pressure balance systems to expand the range of sizes, ground conditions and complexities in which our systems perform. We are committed to exceeding customer expectations with integrity, diligence and without compromise. Akkerman is goal driven for customer success.
