North Star manufactures the world’s most comprehensive range of forged and welded drill rods for horizontal directional drilling projects. Our HDD drill pipes are used with every major directional drilling rig brand: from global giants Vermeer and Ditch Witch to China’s own trenchless drilling pace-setters XCMG and Goodeng, and not forgetting India’s up-and-coming Apollo HDD drill machines.
All North Star drill rods, drill pipes and trenchless tooling are made in our own purpose-built facilities, both located within an easy drive of North Star’s head office in Beijing.
Since 2016 we have invested more than US$8 million in upgrading and expanding drill rod manufacturing capacity at those facilities. The latest additions to our forging, heat treatment and welding lines have consolidated North Star’s position as the largest comprehensive manufacturer of forged and welded drill pipe in the world.
