The Drill king Story

Drill King International was founded back in 2004 by Randy Broseh in Arlington, Texas. A year later, the business turned into a real family affair when brother Larry Broseh acquired the business. The brothers used their extensive industry knowledge to create a unique company with the best customer service in mind.

Continued growth and customer demand saw Drill King in 2008 decide to build a 60,000 sq.ft (5,575 sq.m) facility in Mansfield Texas. From this point the company has gone from strength to strength creating innovative drilling tools and solutions for a variety of customer projects around the globe.
