PWD in 1934

Partridge Well Drilling (PWD) was established in 1892. At that time drilling rigs had masts that were made of wood. They were assembled and dissembled for each job and mobilized from site to site on a horse drawn wagon. Power was from steam. Since 1892, PWD  has encompassed six generations of the same family. PWD’s current president is the fifth generation to manage the company. Utilizing the most advanced equipment and safest drilling procedures available has helped us to achieve our goals of providing quality performance and sustaining a solid register of satisfied clients.
