As the industry leader in Roller Reamer technology, our capability and reliability have been depended on by the global drilling sector internationally since the 1980’s. 

Company History

The Redback™ Roller Reamer was developed in the late 80’s to deliver a superior Roller Reamer to the market in place of the traditional tools that have a history of failure in tough operating conditions. This revolutionary design was so successful that our Roller Reamer quickly became favoured on every bottom-hole assembly (BHA) in Australia. Due to customer demand, Redback™ was launched globally and at this stage established the Redback™ Drilling Tools and Manufacturing business that operates today.
