Founded in 1900

Schramm was founded by Chris Schramm and originally manufactured engine driven machinery and portable air compressors.

Pioneering the drilling industry

In the 50s, Schramm pioneered air flush drilling for use in water well drills and rock quarries. In the 70s, they manufactured top-head driven mobile drilling rigs, coinciding with the birth of the modern exploration drilling industry.

Schramm partners with AirDrill

In 1994, Schramm partnered with Australian drilling company AirDrill, combining quality-built drilling rigs with field service, rig repairs and engineered upgrades, laying the groundwork for Schramm Australia.

Schramm acquires AirDrill and adds Hammers & Bits

Schramm acquired Airdrill in 2013, becoming Schramm Australia. The Hammers & Bits division was born to supply and service the international RC Drilling industry with a purpose built product and expert field support. The Schramm AirDrill product line exceeded every current benchmark in the drilling industry, and continues to break records today.
