The Acker Drill Company was founded as a contracting company for the exploration of coal and other minerals.The company got its start during the days of the very active Anthracite Mining Industry of Pennsylvania.
Located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where coal drills and core drilling services were abundant, Acker Drill set itself apart, securing major contracts from firms like the Lehigh Coal and Navigation, the Pennsylvania Coal Company, and the Hudson Coal Company, among other large mining enterprises. As the coal industry declined, the Acker Drill Company expanded into manufacturing equipment for customers outside the localized anthracite fields of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
