The 4th Annual TTC Auger Boring School

Visit to register for this years annual TTC Auger Boring School (ABS).

Preaching safety and actually demonstrating it are two different things! GM of Barbco and NUCA board of director, David Barbera held a #TrenchSafetyStandDown at local contractor AccuLine Underground’s facilities. This little seminar went over the importance of proper safety protocol and procedures when working in and around trenches. Information like this is important for all contractors as they navigate their way around different job sites and conditions!

Just recently, Barbco’s Chief Operating Officer Jim Barbera was featured on Utility Contractors online podcast. Utility Contractor is an industry leading magazine that is published by Benjamin Media, an internationally recognized publisher of the oil and gas, water, wastewater, solar, tunneling, utility,and construction markets. Jim Barbera was interviewed by Benjamin Media’s editor and publisher, Jim Rush.
