We are happy to announce that as of August 2, 2021, all Canadian Fordia offices will be making drill rigs available to their customers. In an earlier blog this year, we announced that drill rigs would be available for sale in the USA and that proved to be successful, so Canada will now join the USA in adding drill rigs to their portfolio of drilling equipment for the mineral exploration industry.We are happy to announce that as of August x, 2021, all Canadian Fordia offices will be making drill rigs available to their customers.

The goal of the Epiroc and Fordia integration was to offer customers the broadest range of drilling equipment and make their customer experience even better. We pride ourselves on being able to supply our customers with everything they could possibly need for drilling in either mineral exploration, reverse circulation or geotechnical drilling. We’ve got an amazing selection of core bits, drill rods, casing, hammers and in-the-hole equipment like core barrels and recovery tools. Our product line includes lubricants, thread compounds and additives, pumps, and even a drilling water treatment system.

Since our integration, we’ve been aligning our tooling portfolios, choosing the best and most

popular products and adding new ones like the new selection of drill rigs. Our selection of drill rigs includes surface rigs from Christensen, Boyles and Explorac, underground rigs from Diamec including the Smart line, and a choice of drill rigs for geotechnical drilling from EMCI.  In addition to these drill rigs, we will also be offering spare parts and service. The goal is to make sure we offer our customers an exceptional customer experience where they can order everything at one time and at one place.

When it comes to technical expertise, we will ensure our representatives provide customers with the guidance they need when choosing a drill rig. You can rest assured that when purchasing any of our drill rigs, you will receive the same the exceptional customer service for which we are known. Of course, for any drilling challenges, our technical support team is also always available.  Our goal is to make drillers’ lives easier.
