gary  Gary Yeo   OWNER / DRILLER | BURNABY, BC
Gary brought with him over twenty years of drilling experience when he started Uniwide Drilling in 1992. Through a passion for drilling and an aptitude for innovative ideas, Gary has successfully designed and help build the majority of the trucks in the Uniwide fleet. While Gary’s experience, creativity and deep understanding of the needs of his clientele have all been key to the growth of the company, it is perhaps his unequalled work ethic and unwavering care and attention for all aspects of business that truly sets him apart.  Gary can still be seen drilling on site almost every day.
