  Ken Muir and Dick Biri, the highly respected and very knowledgeable owners of Dickens Drilling in East Quincy, mark their 22nd year of business — successful for those very aforementioned reasons. Although they are based in East Quincy, undoubtedly you’ve seen their rigs on jobs throughout Plumas and Sierra counties.
