Hier Drilling Co
began in the fall of 1944, as Hier & Price Drilling Contractors, by Archie Hier and Art Price. In 1972, the company split with Ralph Norden taking on the pump service
, JA Price handling the deep industrial type work, leaving Hier Drilling Co to specialize in the domestic and household wells.
In 1973, Archie's son, George, took the reins of the office and added his children Bruce Hier and Robbie Person to the company during the mid-1980s. Since then, George has retired and handed the company down into the trusting hands of Bruce and Robbie, beginning the third generation of family ownership.
