Our History

In 1969, Eddie had tired of life as a coal miner at Hickleton Main and moved his family to Lincolnshire to begin a new career as a driller for the local council. In 1974, Eddie established his own drilling company, starting out with just a single rig and Land Rover. Always hard working and ambitious, it was only a matter of time before his business grew into the multi-faceted drilling contractor it is today

Looking To Our Future

Our new addition to our Rotary fleet will be arriving shortly to expand our capabilities, improve our availability and increase our flexibility. In addition, we are partnering with our local community college to provide a mentoring service for young people in need of support and encouragement as they enter the world of work. Our pledge is to help local young people thrive and provide opportunities to do so

Our Equipment

Rotary

Rotary

We have a selection of Rotary options to cover all types of site access requirements and scopes of work, using a variety of techniques and flush mediums.

We transport our rigs and ancillary equipment in-house without using low-loaders, making our mobilisation both cost effective and easy to accommodate, especially in residential areas.

Using Beretta and Comacchio rigs, we tick all the boxes for geotechnical work, including window sampling, coring, open hole drilling and augering.

Rotary drilling doesn’t need to break the bank and we are here to show you how
