Saint-Laurent, January 16th, 2009 - Proudly named after the Canadian dog known for its strength and stamina, Husky drill rods and casing are proving that they have everything needed to satisfy drilling contractors.
Produced and distributed by Fordia, a manufacturing company specializing in the mineral exploration and geotechnical sectors – two industries where Canadian expertise has already been proven – the Husky drill rods and casing line is quickly becoming popular in the industry.
Quality-crafted in DCDMA standard sizes using superior alloy steel, Husky drill rods and casing are a great alternative for drilling contractors looking for both quality and competitive prices. Husky rod threads are heat-treated by state-of-the-art electric induction equipment for greater wear resistance and a tight mechanical seal. Each Husky rod and casing is also inspected for straightness and concentricity.
“The process of manufacturing our own drill rods and casing is a matter of controlling technical specifications. That is what ensures we can now guarantee our customers that the products we supply them always meet rigorous quality norms – ours,” says Daniel Baril, Vice President, Equipment & Accessories Division at Fordia. “That’s exactly what our customers expect, and it’s the reason why they do business with us.”
Quality has always been a key driver at Fordia. It was precisely this argument that needed to be proved before Husky drill rods and casing were commercialized. To assess the Husky quality, Fordia conducted a series of field tests in both surface and underground drilling conditions in Canada. Laboratory tests were also launched in conjunction with a government institution. These two test initiatives proved beyond all doubt, that Husky rods respect industry norms and offer even greater results than other well-known manufacturers.
According to the Canadian company, Husky drill rods and casing meet the increasing requirements of drilling contractors. Considering the constant quest for performance that we are experiencing today, and that may grow more in the coming months, the quality of every piece of equipment counts. In fact, the risks of productivity losses due to lower quality products are way too high to be assumed. Husky products eliminate that risk with superior quality that assures stamina under any demanding conditions.
Fordia offers global drilling solutions to its customers in the mineral exploration and geotechnical industries, with a complete range of diamond tools, equipment and accessories. The company is a worldwide leader in the industry, distributing quality products that meet or surpass the specific requirements of drilling companies, while offering outstanding customer service and technical support.
