History & Background

For over three decades Drilltec has been the leader in innovating, engineering, and manufacturing critical protection products for the OCTG market. Drilltec revolutionized the thread protector industry by creating the first industry approved, non-metallic thread protectors. Prior to Drilltec’s entrance into the OCTG market almost all thread protectors in the industry were manufactured from steel. The Company’s new age thread protectors brought significant advantages to the OCTG market including protection against thread galling and bi-metal corrosion while also providing an easily recyclable alternative to steel protectors. As composite thread protectors gained industry wide acceptance in the 1980’s, the company was able to expand by moving to a new manufacturing facility and establishing a sales force in the United States in 1985.

Following the success of Drilltec’s composite thread protectors, the Company continued its history of innovative products in the OCTG market by creating the Resist-All Packaging (RAP) system, a pipe protection system used in the transportation and storage of pipe.

To keep pace with growing global demand for its existing and new product offerings, Drilltec has opened numerous joint ventures throughout the world in the last three decades making Drilltec the world leader in OCTG thread protectors.
