Since 1946, Emil Anderson Construction (EAC) Inc. has been an industry leader for drilling and blasting activities and major “rock projects” within British Columbia. During this greater than sixty years, we have benefited from major advancements to the designs and operating systems in regard to Rock Drills.

By weight alone, the Rock Drill is likely one of the most expensive pieces in any Contractor’s equipment fleet. Today’s Rock Drills are “user friendly” for Drill Operators, but they pose a greater challenge to Mechanical personnel who are tasked with the maintenance and repairs to these units. In the working environment of today, Contractors have an increased reliance on Suppliers for support. As such, Contractors take serious deliberation and consideration in their choice of Rock Drill and their Supplier.

For EAC, we have found the Sandvik Rock Drills to be the best choice for our requirements. The Sandvik line has proven to be both reliable and productive. Additionally, the corporate support from Sandvik for warranties and/or product updates has been excellent.

Most importantly, the after sales support provided by the Sandvik Dealer, Traxxon Rock Drills Ltd., has been impressive. No matter how remote our Project location(s), Traxxon always has provided timely onsite support and parts availability. The product and technical support teams from Traxxon Rock Drills Ltd. are extremely committed groups. In support of their customers and their product lines, compromise is not an option!
