OVERVIEW & HISTORY
Since 1973, Akkerman has developed, manufactured and supported quality pipe jacking and tunneling solutions that accurately install a variety of underground infrastructure. We are proud to be the only North American manufacturer of our variety of equipment and a recognized worldwide competitor.
Symmetry with contractors has been the backbone of our business and a point of distinction above our competition. Before Akkerman the equipment manufacturer, there was D. H. Akkerman Construction Company. In order to satisfy their own need to accurately install pipe under crossings, Akkerman Manufacturing was founded over forty years ago.
Akkerman offers small town values coupled with a global perspective. Our business operates with the highest level of integrity and Akkerman employees have a personal investment in our customers’ success. Our highly skilled sales team has a clear understanding of industry demands. Our in-house engineering department applies the most current standards and continually reviews, reassesses and enhances our equipment offerings.
Akkerman is committed to making every effort to position our equipment on your next pipe jacking or tunneling project. As an added benefit, the purchase of a complete equipment system includes crew training and technical support. Akkerman systems are available for purchase, lease-to-purchase, or rent from our rental fleet. Select equipment will be considered for trade-in. Contact a sales engineer to pair the best option to your requirements.
