Drill King International was founded in 2004 by Randy Broseh in Arlington, Texas, and acquired by his brother Larry in 2005. The brothers used their extensive drilling industry knowledge to create a unique company with great customer service in mind. In 2008, Drill King moved into a new 60,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, giving the company room to expand into other products such as: casing advance systems, hole openers, casing crowns, reverse circulation bits, bit retaining systems, threaded and retract bits, adapter subs, hammer stabilizers/shock subs, fishing tools, short drill rods, drag bits, blade bits, pdc bits, and tricones. In September 2011, the company became ISO 9001:2008 certified for the quality of its manufacturing practices and, thus, is one of the very few US-manufacturers holding this most prestigious recognition for quality in the world today.
Recently, Drill King added two new CNC machines to expand its existing percussion hammer and bit business so the company can provide extensive machining services to better serve the growing demand from the mining and oil & gas industries.
Drill King provides specialized air drilling products to customers around the world from Europe to Asia, Africa and Australia, to North and South America. The company manufactures down-the-hole percussion hammers and hammer bits for numerous drilling industries, including mining, quarry, oil & gas, construction, geothermal, and water well.
With over 150 years of combined experience, the Drill King team is committed to excellence utilizing the latest technologies in engineering to produce cutting-edge designs and break-through innovations. Drill King custom-designs its products to meet the needs of each individual customer and takes pride in being one of the only US-manufacturers with a diverse line of DTH (down-the-hole) bits, as big as 42 inches in diameter and for use with almost all hammer shanks available on the market today. What is more, DK’s line of air hammers is specifically engineered with the drilling professional in mind. The unique airflow design of the DK hammers helps maximize performance by offering the power needed to drill deeper and faster.
Drill King is a member of the National Groundwater Association and actively participates in events organized by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, National Mining Association, and ADSC International Association of Foundation Drilling.
