Crossroads Coring Ltd was established 30 years ago in a garage in Calgary, by Theo Michelbrink. He designed and built a hydraulic push machine, which was used for the installation of underground utilities for driveways and small road crossings. This machine was capable of pushing/pulling a 6”- 8” hole for a maximum of 75 feet. Even before surface launch directional drilling machines were in use, Theo had designed an innovative pit launch drill, which used fluid injection and different drill bits, making it easier to drill larger holes on rocky soil conditions. Theo Michelbrink retired in late 2019 and passed on control to Adrian Michelbrink.
