Harper Services is a family run business and has been in operation for over 35 years.

We take pride in our work and build close relations with our customers to achieve excellent outcomes for everyone involved.


Harper Services invest heavily in the ever evolving drilling technology and because of that we are at the forefront of our industry. We have our own drilling fluid recycling facilities to reduce drilling fluids that is generated on our sites which results in minimal impact on the environment.


All of our staff hold CSCS cards with the key site personnel holding blue skilled worker cards, in addition to this they all have EUSR and Water Hygiene qualifications. All the Horizontal Directional Drillers hold a National Vocational Qualification in Horizontal Directional Drilling.


Our contracts manager holds a Black CSCS Card and our compliance manager holds a Gold CSCS card.


Each drill team typically consists of a Driller and a Drillers assistant and on our larger rigs these are increased to match the project requirements.
