The support of these new companies widens the BDA's membership and moves the Association further towards one of its primary aims of being fully-representative of the drilling industry.
"It is always a pleasure to welcome new companies into the BDA," said Martyn Brocklesby, chair of the BDA. "The more members we have the greater the knowledge base of the BDA and the better we can represent the drilling industry, both within the sector and at a more strategic level as a specialist contractor in construction.
"It also helps the BDA in its goals to drive forward standards, innovation and critical issues - such as best practice and health and safety."
