Aardvark now drills Water Supply Wells!

We are very excited…

Aardvark Drilling Inc. has recently purchased the water well drilling equipment from Gerrits Drilling and Engineering. The assets include a Foremost DR-12 and a Foremost Dr-24 and all the tooling and ancillary/support equipment needed for drilling medium and large diameter water supply wells. We are now offering pump installation services, pump testing, and of course all the other services we have been offering for years.

We are very excited to have the Gerrits crew with all their years of knowledge and skills join the growing Aardvark Team. For Water Well Drilling inquiries, quotes and bookings please contact either Matt England or Darren Juneau. Contact information can be found on our website contact page.

Meet the twins…

Both of these babies are 1969 FN-110 Nodwells. That’s the same year and model found on the Canadian stamp commemorating the great Canadian invention by John Nodwell.
