Creighton Rock Drill Ltd.

Creighton Rock Drill Ltd. is a privately owned company distributing high quality leading edge products to engage the extreme demands of the aggregate, attachments, construction, drilling solutions, hardware, fluids, road maintenance and ground engaging markets.

Creighton Rock Drill Ltd. was founded in April 1966 by D.J. (Jim) Creighton and his wife Evelyn. At the time working out of their family home Jim and Evelyn managed to work the business into a going concern while at the same time raised a family of seven siblings. The siblings helped their parents in any way they could, answering the phone, taking orders and shipping products. After acquiring their post secondary educations, six of the seven siblings joined the business and to this day continue to work together making Creighton Rock Drill Ltd. a valued supplier within the industry.
