Halco High-Tech Down-the-Hole Technology is Poised for Success in North America Adapted from Information by Halco Rock Tools Halco, a company owned by Caterpillar several years ago, has actively entered the North American down-the-hole (DTH) market as an independent enterprise with its new and developed products representing top-of-the-line DTH technology. The U.S. market welcomes Halco with its new products as one of the reliable suppliers in the DTH industry. The new Super Dominator product range has innovative design optimizing efficiency, penetration, and fuel economy. The range has been added with the 4-, 5-, and 6-inch tubeless hammers. Halco is well-known as one of the pioneers in DTH drilling technology with its history reaching to 1951. Halco’s previous owners have included industry giants such as Terex, Bucyrus, and Caterpillar, during which period Halco achieved a solid foothold and brand recognition in the U.S. market, as well as on the global stage. Since then, the company has been focusing on developing its DTH technology as an independent supplier. The company is intensively developing its global sales network and focusing on its strong growth strategy. All Halco products are UK-engineered and designed especially for quarrying, open-pit mining, construction, and groundwater applications. “Halco’s central warehouse in Sherman, Texas, provides the availability within an easy reach to the drilling industry in the USA and Canada, as well as Mexico. The drilling contractors have been very satisfied with the Halco service, and we are broadening our presence and market coverage in North America. On that basis, we still look for a couple of dealers to reach out and give the best service to all end-users in N.A.,” said Perttu Aho, general manager of Halco. “The Halco Team wants to bring Halco as one of the main actors in the global DTH business segment offering high-tech products with an extremely customer-friendly pricing,” he explained. Halco will be exhibiting at MINExpo 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in September, and at Groundwater Week 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee, in December. DTH product range covers bit sizes from 3- to 26-inch hole diameters utilizing 2- to 18-inch hammers. Perttu Aho, general manager for Halco. MIN August Issue Deadlines!
