OVERVIEW & HISTORY
Akkerman develops, manufactures and supports powerful and versatile guided boring, microtunneling, pipe jacking, sliplining, tunneling and earth pressure balance underground construction solutions that accurately install a variety of pipe in an extensive range of ground conditions and project challenges.
Since 1973, our industry-leading equipment has enabled contractors worldwide to productively and cost-effectively install water, wastewater, and other infrastructure. Now in our 46th year with a legacy of commitment to excellence, we continue to innovate and provide the most robust and productive equipment available.
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. To satisfy their need to accurately install pipe under crossings, the manufacturing branch of Akkerman was founded years ago.

Our business operates with the highest level of integrity and Akkerman employees have a personal investment in our customers’ success.

Aftermarket parts sales are efficiently dispatched to minimize project delays and ensure that your equipment is prepared for optimal performance on its next challenge.
