Mike Cramer is the Sonic Division Manager for Gregg Drilling: ‘Gregg Drilling has been in business since 1985. It has about 130 employees, and we do mostly environmental and geotechnical drilling. We got into sonic drilling in 2015, when there was a big need that we needed to fill. Sonic drilling is becoming more and more popular – the versatility and the adaptability of these machines is second to none.
The thing that makes sonic unique or special is its adaptability, its ability to overcome challenging geologies.
‘We currently have two rigs – a truck rig and a track rig – and most of our applications are environmental drilling. The thing that makes sonic unique or special is its adaptability, its ability to overcome challenging geologies. Even sands, cobbles, boulders, and the more difficult geologies for conventional drills to work with.’
'The Fraste Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill FS 250, the LargeRotoSonic, is our most recent addition. This is a full-size sonic rig, truck-mounted (as big as you get with a sonic drill). It’s capable of drilling up to 6 inches and boring up to 1000 feet.'
'Most of our business is environmental drilling; it’s our core business. We do a lot of monitoring wells, soil sampling, and water sampling. I think sonic is the future. It’s the crescent wrench to the toolbox, as it can be adapted and do drilling in just about any formation.’

Since Gregg’s inception in 1985, the company has been widely recognized as a leader and innovator in drilling, sampling, and subsurface investigation, providing clients in industry and government with the highest-quality services.
