Investing In the Best Equipment to Ensure Employee and Environmental Safety
Gregory Drilling invests heavily to ensure clean, safe work sites. We own state-of-the-art equipment to enable us to drill safely in any soil condition. Our fleet mechanics regularly maintain every piece of equipment to ensure it is ready for the job. One example of our investment in safety is our mud recycling systems. We use our fleet of mud recycling systems to contain all drill cuttings and drilling mud, then transport it to a controlled staging area, keeping your site clean and maintaining a safe working environment for everyone on the job site. Our tool handling devices increase efficiency, increase crew safety, and reduce costs. We pass the savings on to you – resulting in lower project costs. These are just a couple of the ways we invest to increase safety on every job site.
Gregory Drilling has a core crew of employees that have been with us for a minimum of two years; many have been with us for more than five years.
