Roger Skillings

Skillings & Sons, Inc.

Based in Amherst, New Hampshire, Skill-

ings & Sons, Inc., has experience in commer-

cial, industrial and municipal water systems,

as well as geothermal drilling. The Skillings

operation is equipped to address the in-

creased need for geothermal exchange work

in the Northeast part of the country.

Since 1970, Skillings has been designing,

installing and maintaining water systems in

a three-state geographic region including

New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine,

where drilling is often more demanding than

nearly any where else in the country.

With the rising cost of fossil fuels and their

environmental impact, for the last twenty

years, Skillings has also drilled for geother-

mal applications. They offer the same high

quality service for residential or commercial

projects. Skillings has completed projects for

banks, public libraries, condominium com-

plexes, a U.S. Border Crossing facility, a trau-

ma center, the Tilton, N.H. Veterans Home,

the U.S. Air Force Base in Portsmouth, N.H.,

and many others.

Skillings also did drilling on the largest

geothermal site in New England, a nursing

home that opened in late 2007, where 16

boreholes, 8-inch in diameter were drilled to

1,500 feet.
