Drillmec’s story began over one hundred years ago. Ballerini and Massarenti, two pioneering companies in the manufacturing of drilling rigs, were founded in the early twenties of the last century, and within a few decades they became important realities in the oil & gas sector. At the beginning of the nineties Drillmec was founded with the acquisition of both brands and related patents.
In the following decade the company grew and the acquisition of Branham, Inc. marked a key moment for the brand. It is the beginning of the rise that led Drillmec in less than twenty years to establish itself as one of the major players among the drilling rig manufacturers. The results achieved in over a hundred years of international experience have been recognized by customers worldwide and stem from our commitment to continuous improvement through the pursuit of high quality, with a strong focus on human resources and highly standardized and efficient processes.
For more than thirty years Drillmec has been part of the Trevi Group; since 2020 MEIL Global Holdings B.V. is the major shareholder of Drillmec.
