AKITA Drilling was formed in January of 1993, with drilling operations in Canada and the United States. Since it's inception, AKITA has been committed to excellence in all that we do – whether on the job, in the boardroom or in the community. Our path to success is rooted in the relationships we build with all of our stakeholders, from the customers and shareholders we serve, to the 800+ individuals we employ.
Mutually beneficial joint ventures with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples are a pillar of our history and have been a significant point of pride from the beginning, with operations in key geographic locations throughout Alberta, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon.
Together, AKITA and our partners directly benefit economically through joint equity in rig ownership, and today more than 20 different Aboriginal groups hold equity investments in our rigs.
While the nature of our operations has continued to evolve over the years, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing the highest quality of service to every one of our customers. For us, that means employing a well-trained, multicultural workforce, operating first-class equipment and enforcing the highest possible quality standards in all areas of business.
