About Our Company



Since 1984

Manufacturing Bucyrus-Erie style well drills and parts.

Our History

With the purchase of the assets of the Bucyrus-Erie Well Drill Division, the new corporation accepted the challenge and opportunity to continue a more than 50-year-old tradition of outstanding performance and low maintenance service to the water and shallow oil well drillers of the world.

We’ve been serving the water drilling and petroleum exploration industries through Buckeye Supply Company since 1929.

Nobody’s Done it Longer

Our sister company, Buckeye Supply Company, was the first distributor
established by Bucyrus-Erie Company back in 1941. So, we’ve seen it all,
and can fix it all!
