Our Story

The history of ADT Africa Limited, from our birth in 2004 to the present day.
Today, ADT Africa Limited is one of the largest diversified drilling service providers in East and Central Africa.

How we started
Founded in 2004, the company origins began as operating under Aqua Drill Tech conducting water drilling operations.

Diversifying through the Mineral exploration value chain
From 2014 we formed ADT Africa and began to diversify from purely water drilling to mineral exploration, geotechnical and geothermal drilling services. We made key investment and acquisitions in top of the line manufactured drilling rigs as a result of opportunity from the mineral industry’s downturn. Through superior service we offer related services including Civil, Earth moving works both onshore and offshore (dredging), camps and access roads.

Becoming the major mining company’s driller of choice
We were renamed ADT Drilling in 2017 following the incorporation of new subsidiaries in Africa.
