SPARTAN DIRECTIONAL, LLC, under the direction of Boyd Simon, partnered with Barry Nailling and others, is a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) company specializing in large pipe diameter sizes and extended crossings.

Boyd is a Louisiana-licensed professional civil engineer, earning his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1995.  He is also a licensed contractor in Louisiana for Building Construction; Highway, Street and Bridge Construction;  Heavy Construction; Municipal and Public Works Construction; Electrical Work; and Hazardous Waste Treatment & Removal.  He also holds contractors licenses in several other states in the U.S. and has over nineteen years of experience in the HDD industry and nearly 25 years in the construction industry.  Beginning as an estimator for a horizontal directional drilling company, Boyd learned the in’s and out’s of the equipment, materials, and labor required to complete a project.  Only several years later was he promoted to Division Manager of a construction company on the decline, with declining profit margins.  It took only a short time for Boyd, acting as Division Manager to turn the company around and resulted in a successful and profitable business.

Barry is a leader in the world of big rig operations.  With over 30 years of construction experience, he has been a key asset in the successful completion of numerous HDD projects.  He has a niche for complex projects which include large diameter and long HDD crossings.  Barry’s dedication and work ethic have made him a successful and integral part of mastering even the largest scale projects.  Barry has the proven experience and leadership to oversee the most complex HDD projects.

Collectively, SPARTAN DIRECTIONAL, LLC offers over 75 years in the Horizontal Directional Drilling and construction industry.
