The Hastings, MN Location

After years in the industry, the founder and CEO identified a need for quality directional drilling services within the Twin Cities region. In 1998 Universal Services Inc. was created.

Since its inception, Universal Services Inc. has gone through extensive growth cycles. We began with one bucket truck, a drill, and a two man team. Over the past 17 years we have moved facilities multiple times to support our rapid growth.

In the recent past, we have doubled our company size every year for the last 4 years. We are very proud to state that we currently employ 100+ team members and operate 160+ pieces of equipment.

Our services have diversified over the years to ensure that our customers have the availability to receive multiple services while dealing with one primary service provider.

This facility currently houses 5 drill crews along with half of our concrete/ asphalt/restoration crews. We are located on 2.5 acres of land with 30,000 square feet of covered garage space.

We can handle every aspect of your project, from planning to construction and restoration.
