UNOH graduate Matthew Boes is a young entrepreneur who made his childhood dream of owning a water well drilling business a reality when he established Boes Water Well Drilling and Pump Services in August 2023.

His mission is clear: to provide a quality water source for generations to come by building a business based on hard work and integrity. Together, with his wife Kaylyn Boes, they share a passion for the growth and support of the community.

Boes offers a wide range of services to cater to the needs of both residential and commercial clients. They specialize in drilling residential, commercial, geothermal, and agricultural wells. Additionally, Boes oversees the entire water system installment process, from the conception of the well to the establishment of the water source into the desired structure. They also handle the installation of water tanks and pumps, repair water line leaks, and provide water testing services.

"Drilling wells and owning a drill rig has always been a dream of mine," said Boes."Starting my business at a young age and helping others is a dream come true."

His passion for the well business stems from his childhood experiences watching his father, Jerry Boes, drill water wells. Growing up in Seneca County, Boes is dedicated to serving the rural community where he grew up.

His journey to becoming a successful business owner started with his education. He graduated from Columbian High School in 2018 and went on to complete a degree in agribusiness at the University of Northwestern Ohio in 2020. His academic background equipped him with the knowledge and skills necessary to run a successful water drilling business.

"Growing up around my dad drilling wells and excavating initiated my interest in the well business at a young age," Boes added. "My dad taught me how to install water systems and always encouraged hands-on learning during the summers and weekends, I would go on jobs with my dad."

Boes Water Well Drilling and Pump Services is located at 8985 Township Highway 18, McCutchenville, Ohio.  More information about his business can be found on Facebook and
