Edward Ted Wright is a 4th generation well driller.  Edward’s great grandfather, John, began drilling wells, in Mount Forest Ontario, in the early 1800’s with a steam engine.

John and his son Dalton made their own wooden hand pumps.  When John retired, Edward’s grandpa Dalton took over.  Dalton used a gas and wooden drilling machine.  Later, Dalton, later trained his son Dalt with a gas cable tool machine, often called a pounder.

Now, we drill with a diesel powered rotary machine.

With over 100 years of combined experience, and 50 years himself, Edward Wright’s Well Drilling is able to offer customized, personalized well drilling service in a wide variety of environments.
