About PG Drilling

The late Mr. Abraham (Mannie) Gien started drilling on his farm Groot Marico area in the 1940™. The Giens then imported their first Compressed air drilling rig from America in 1964 and 1966 respectively.

Peter Gien saw opportunity to adapt and market a œdown the hole hammer for the South African Market and modified the first hammer in his workshop on their farm, thus P.G Drilling was born.

After Peter's untimely death, brothers, Barn and Sakkie, continued drilling and manufacturing hammers to keep his legacy alive.

In 1972, The MK1 was designed, patented and manufactured by Barn and Manny Gien (Father), while Sakkie drilled and tested all new hammers. The MKII, Mamba, DB and many others soon followed.

The Research and Development Department at PG Drilling, run by Barn are working on more innovative projects like horizontal hammers, tubeless hammers, rock drills and other associated drilling equipment.

Our Research and Development Department can help you design for your very special needs.
