Our Mission

We put new ideas to work by using proven products and quality materials. Our professional engineers have over 50 years of collective experience in the design of structural/mechanical components, assemblies, and systems. We focus on cost efficiency, innovation, quality, and safety.

Our Story

In 1996, Theodore C. Vora, P.E. decided he wanted to use his oilfield engineering knowledge to build a unique drilling rig that focused on a balance of speed and safety. He started Veristic in his house, with just one other employee. From such simple beginnings Veristic is now a 16 person company that has over 50 drilling structures working in the field today.

Our customers come back to us time and time again because…
  • We address and respond to their requirements 100%
  • We deliver results on time
  • We earn and keep their trust
