Tana Drilling Industries has been operational for the past 14 years, leading the water well drilling sector in Ethiopia. TDI recently started producing high quality PVC and HDPE Pipes and strives to achieve client satisfaction through the quality work produced by our highly skilled professional staff.  As a company, we invest in our technicians to give them the necessary skills to operate state-of- the-art machinery, including the Ingersoll Rand drilling rig. Our staff take all the necessary trainings to keep up to date as the industry advances. As a result, we continue to operate at a high standard, and maintain a position of leadership in the industry.

At Tana Drilling Industries we use our significant resources to fill in the gap that external support agencies have tried to meet in order to increase the drilling capacity of government agencies and NGOs. Apart from providing solutions at a regional level, TDI is set to expand water well drilling and borehole works to other African and Middle Eastern countries.
