A Relentless Standard
Our Founder, Art Holte, started as a driller dreaming of better equipment. Art stopped dreaming, started designing, and today is one of the most gifted innovators in the industry. His emphasis on understanding the entire drilling system, from Bit to Rig, and a relentless focus on designing the best tools for the job, have pervaded the company. Holte builds tools to meet the needs of the industry—not shareholders. Our sales and design teams have literally machined, assembled, and used our tools. Our offices are still on the manufacturing floor where we can hear the sweet sounds of CNCs and testing hammers, where machinists, sales, and designers can interact to customize tools for your job.
