Our Founders

McAllister Drilling has been recognized as the “Go-To” name in the domestic water well industry as early as the 1940’s, when Frank McAllister (Sr.) started with a horse-driven boring rig. From there, his sons provided Lloydminster and surrounding area with water wells throughout the 1950’s utilizing a jetting rig. The company soon expanded into mud-rotary drilling, and Roy and Bert McAllister became involved in many original exploration programs and the hydrogeological mapping of Alberta water formations.

This practical knowledge and on-site experience from the early days has shaped the company into an active industry leader. For over a decade, McAllister Drilling has had a member serving as a Director in the Alberta Water Well Association. Today, McAllister Drilling employs nine journeyman drillers and three first-year apprentices, the most of any company in Western Canada. This family business has fourth generation members in the field continuing to build on the legacy of its founders.
