Center Rock, Inc. (CRI)

Center Rock was founded in 1998 by Brandon Fisher, a former Ingersoll-Rand sales rep for the East Coast. Fisher knew the drilling industry lacked a product provider that could also quickly react to customer on-site needs. In other words, he built us as a servicing manufacturer. We manufacture Down the Hole Rock Drilling Tools, Hammers and Rock Drill Bits. Richard Soppe, our Sales and R&D Manager for Downhole Drilling Products, has more than 35 years of genuine drilling experience, including major projects such as the world’s first and second live lake taps (20’-diameter shafts, 100’-deep under 250’ of water). Center Rock Inc.’s new HDD LP DRILL is a product that has evolved after many years of success with our LP product line. The LP product line has proven to be very efficient in drilling the hardest rock formations around the world.
