EnviroBore Directional Drilling




Successfully running his own company for more than 9 years, Josh Wettlaufer has 20+ years of HDD experience and a passion for Keeping Western Canada GREEN.

With his passion for the environment, a desire to be a leader in trenchless technologies and a belief in building a company that cares and mentors its employees, Josh began EnviroBore in 2010. With an exciting change in management in 2018 – EnviroBore 2018 Ltd was born, a proud Owner/Operated company!

Josh Wettlaufer fell in love with Directional Drilling while attending Fleming College. He discovered the benefits of HDD in the construction world and its low footprint on the environment. He began his career with the opportunity to work throughout Ontario and the Eastern United States. After moving to Alberta in 2003, Josh fell in love with the wide open prairies, soaring Rocky Mountains and great people of this province. He decided to make Alberta home and began to dream of running an HDD company that would help significantly reduce the footprint of pipelines and utility installation.

Josh’s passion for the environment not only stems from a love of the outdoors, nature, and fishing, but from his strong belief that our actions today affect the quality of tomorrow. He is proud to support the oil and gas industry while being committed to being a passionate supporter of a sustainable environment.

Josh leads an amazing team of committed employees, who are committed to serving clients with the highest integrity, efficiency, safety and working hard towards successful projects – every time.
