One of Terry A. Trew’s biggest focuses and challenges is creating a quality company that will continue to flourish once he passes it on to the next generation. Trew has been a part of the drilling industry for 45 years. He founded Pearson Drilling Inc., based in Seattle, in 1977. The company works on shoring and deep foundations projects in the western half of Washington State. As a drilling and pile driving contractor, Pearson Drilling specializes in soldier piles, auger cast piles, drilled shafts and helical piles, as well as sheet piles, H-piles, round piles and pin piles.
While his role lately has centered around ensuring a smooth transition out, Trew says he still enjoys the business and working with his family. “I’ve always loved the challenges in the drilling industry and couldn’t imagine doing anything else,” he says.
