Drillform was founded in 2010, by a team of industry professionals to design, manufacture and service automated drilling rig equipment.
With decades of equipment design plus manufacturing experience, the team had previously built a market leading, established brand of drilling equipment. In a competitive industry, dominated by large players, Drillform’s design philosophy continues to focus on producing products offering ultimate reliability and performance in the field.
Building on their extensive field experience, Drillform invested in a rigorous R&D process to launch the Bulldog (BD) product line. It’s underlying design principles are serviceability, safety and reliability. The BD line includes automated floor wrenches, catwalks (pipe handlers) and top drives. Additional products are in development and will round out the line.
HOW IS DRILLFORM DIFFERENT?
ROOTS: At Drillform, service drives everything, beginning with design. Drillform products are specifically manufactured to be easily maintained and supported in the field by the drilling contractor and our own experienced field service technicians. This includes an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.
PHILOSOPHY: Ultimately, Drillform provides solutions to problems. It underlies every aspect of the company. Whether it’s a unique rig floor or small derrick that requires specific approach or a catwalk recertification on a tight deadline we will quickly determine how we can add value.
FLEXIBILITY: Driven by our philosophy, we have both the desire and flexibility to respond to client specific needs. We will be honest, upfront and if we accept a project, we will deliver on our commitment.
SAFETY: Drillform’s products means a safer rig environment with fewer near misses and lost time incidents. The automated rig components remove personnel from harm’s way and because Drillform products perform reliably– drilling contractors and operators can create a safe rig environment without compromising efficient and productive operations.
