Made in the U.S.A., Matrix drill rods and in-hole tools continue to prove reliable and economical worldwide. Our dual tube is used to explore for and quantify mineral reserves, as well as produce water wells and dewatering holes.

With two locations, Tennessee and Idaho, Matrix is central to drilling operations nationwide. Forty years of innovative engineering has proven that all in-hole tools are not created equal. But don’t just listen to us. Listen to the people who count on our tools - day in and day out.

This is what relentless looks like.
