Company History

All American Drilling Inc. (AAD) was formed in 2016 by John McCalip, Richard Banks and John Harris. The founder’s idea was to create a viable and responsible business to support water resources needs for residents and industries in the California Central Coast, Central Valley, and Southern California. The 3 founding partners experience in the drilling and water resources industry stems from years of experience in the agricultural water drilling and management, oil field services and hydrogeology and roles and previous positions.

Initially, AAD purchased its first drilling rig which has been actively drilling since the day was delivered to the Company. Through continued focus, AAD has continued to grow both geographically and by adding services to better serve its customers. Most recently, (April 2019) AAD acquired Fisher Pump and Well Services Inc, in Santa Maria, – substantially growing the Company’s well and pump deployment and maintenance products and services.
