Numa products are now being distributed by Skelair International in the U.K. Skelair is a supplier of ground engineering and rock drilling equipment and machines. The company sells and rents equipment for drilling applications around the globe.

Effective Feb. 1, 2016, Skelair supplies the full range of Numa’s downhole hammers and bits. The supplier’s primary markets for Numa drilling tools are infrastructure and civil engineering projects.

“Our focus as a company has always been to provide high performing products underpinned by the very best in technical service and support,” says Ralph Leonard, president of Numa. “Skelair is a well-respected name in the industry from a supply perspective, but also through their proven experience in contract drilling. We are very confident that Skelair will add value to our existing customers, and equally importantly, help us to further cement our position in Europe.”

As part of the agreement Skelair will be collaborating with Geolorn, specialists in Numa products and experienced deep-hole drilling consultants.

Our aim is to be able to provide a turnkey solution for challenging drilling requirements and by doing so, help customers to keep major drilling projects on track. We’re not a company that wants to stand still and by bringing Numa on board at a buoyant time in the market, we expect to make some significant moves forward.”
