About Acker Drill Company

Celebrating over 100 Years! Acker Drill Company was founded in 1916 and has been exporting its products worldwide since 1960. Today, we are recognized as a world leader in the manufacture of drill rigs and tooling for the geotechnical, environmental, mineral exploration, mining, and civil engineering industries.

Opening of current Acker Plant 1959.

We pride ourselves in our extensive line of drill rigs, which are unmatched in versatility, build quality and performance. And our drill rigs aren’t cookie-cutters – our staff excels at providing custom engineered solutions to site-specific problems, either on a design-build basis, or in co-operation with the client. This creates an environment that has allowed us to push innovation and set industry standards.

Further, we are one of North America’s largest manufacturers of drilling consumables with our tooling widely used and distributed around the world. Throughout our 100 year history, our name has become synonymous with high quality, innovation, and exemplary customer service, which we believe is the cornerstone to our success.
