History

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 and 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 and customer service philosophy continues to focus on solutions to meet the needs and expectations of our customers.

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 (iron roughnecks), catwalks (pipe handlers) and top drives. Additional products are in development and will round out the line.

What Sets Us Apart

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. Drillform products help drilling contractors and operators to create a safe rig environment without compromising efficient and productive operations.
