Manufacturer of DeHoff, Eldorado, & TechniDrill Deep Hole Drilling Machines

Kays Engineering has purchased TechniDrill

TechniDrill Systems, Inc. has been purchased by Kays Engineering. The TechniDrill brand of gundrilling and BTA machines have been designed and manufactured in Kent, Ohio since 1984. The machines will now be manufactured alongside the DeHoff and Eldorado brands of gundrilling machines in our Marshall, Missouri facility.

“Our company has a 36-year history of building high-quality gundrilling machines,” TechniDrill president Patricia Kent said. “I am proud that the TechniDrill legacy will continue, and that the machines will continue to be made in America.”

“We take great pride in the excellent reputation our DeHoff and Eldorado products have earned over the last half-century,” Kays Engineering president Ed Kays said. “We plan to put that same pride into building and servicing TechniDrill machines, and continuing their tradition of quality American-made machinery. Our three machine brands will together represent a combined 172 years of gundrilling knowledge under one roof!”

Please contact us for new machine orders, or for parts and technical support on your existing TechniDrill machine.
