Friesen Drillers bears little resemblance to the company founded in 1892 by C.K. Friesen, who started the business drilling for water in southeastern Manitoba with one rig. Today, we use over 40 pieces of equipment to complete drilling projects around the world, and work out of a new 32,000 sq. ft. facility located just north of Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada. Our company is operated by the 3rd and 4th generation of Friesen's.
If you have a problem at home with a dry or contaminated well it can't wait, and if your commercial operation is flooding or in danger from river erosion then speed is important. Friesen Drillers operates at a maximum capacity of 43 drilling rigs ready to move at a moments notice. Our customers have come to expect complete service and Friesen Drillers has been able to deliver with an array of generators, test pumps, water/service units and auxiliary air machinery and hammers to back up our primary drilling rigs.
Complete service and complete satisfaction have been the hallmarks of our business for over 120 years. From simple residential water wells to complex piling for building constructions you can count on Friesen Drillers to deliver.
