Respected Leader Among Water Well Drilling Companies in Ontario

Gerrits Well Drilling Inc. (GWD) was founded by Frank Gerrits in 1956. Currently operated as Gerrits Drilling & Engineering by Chris Gerrits, we operate a fleet of equipment that includes three rotary drilling rigs, one cable tool drilling rig and all necessary equipment for hoisting, removal and installation of submersible and line shaft turbine well pumps.

Gerrits Drilling & Engineering has its own submersible video equipment, with side-view capability to produce both colour and black-and-white images and videos of wells. Our team is experienced in the completion of well diagnostics and well rehabilitation methods. Gerrits Drilling & Engineering employs a crew of licensed well and pump technicians, groundwater professionals and engineers (Professional Engineers licensed in Ontario) with over 100 years of combined experience in well design, construction, testing and rehabilitation.


We insist on stringent safety practices that exceed even the legal requirements, both for our employees and for our clients. And remember: never go into a well pit! Well pits are often full of hazardous gases that have, unfortunately, proven deadly to others who are not so cautious. Do not make this possibly fatal mistake!
