MEET OUR TEAM

We all play different roles at First Drilling.

From the drill team, to our maintenance team, to our safety and training team, to our home office… we are proud to call ourselves drillers.

Our team may wear hard hats, turn wrenches, or review safety procedures. We may sit in offices or operate heavy equipment. But every one of us is First Drilling.

We are all in the business of drilling rock.
