Our History

Richard and Jan Bombardier began J.R. Drilling Central Limited Partnership in Cranbrook, British Columbia, in 1989, using an older Chicago Pneumatic drill rig. Within four years, they sold that rig and purchased the first of many new DR (dual-rotary) rigs, a Foremost DR 16. With this technologically advanced equipment, Richard was able to use his unique, forward-thinking, and innovative ideas to quickly grow the company and increase its market share in East and West Kootenay. Contracts included environmental drilling for most of the major engineering companies in BC, working on the Bennett Dam sinkhole project for BC Hydro, placer gold exploration in Northern BC, and dewatering wells, exploration holes, wireline piezometers, and angle hole drilling for the East Kootenay coal mines.

Expansion into the U.S.

In 1999, J.R. Drilling Ltd. expanded into the U.S. market and, along with three partners, started a drilling company in Southern Arizona: ADT Drilling. Richard broadened his drilling experience in the southern states, including drilling 24-inch diameter flood reverse holes for the Bureau of Reclamation. Richard and Jan expanded within British Columbia by teaming up with Richard’s brother, Don, to establish J.R. Drilling Central Limited Partnership in the Kamloops area. When Richard and Jan retired in 2005, the Cranbrook branch and the Kamloops branch were sold separately, forming two distinct companies. J.R. Drilling Central hired Richard as a Technical Advisor and Senior Trainer, and we considered ourselves fortunate that he was able to share his vast knowledge of the industry with our team. Richard is fully retired now, but our team of drilling contractors in Williams Lake is continuing to learn and move the company forward.

We remain a small company with Kelly Pelletier being the primary owner.
