“We utilize our extensive experience in projects across Australia and strive to provide Quality Service Safely across all aspects of our operations”

Hagstrom Drilling’s founder, Paul Musca (Hagstrom), commenced working within the Drilling industry as a driller’s assistant in 1984 at the age of 17 when he started his employment with an established environmental and geotechnical drilling company. 

Paul quickly progressed to the role of driller gaining recognition for his attention to detail and strong work ethic. It is during this time Paul decided to follow his passion for drilling and established Hagstrom Drilling in 1992 as an owner-operator business within Western Australia’s geotechnical drilling sector. Under his leadership, Hagstrom Drilling  extended it drilling services over the next few years to become a multi-disciplinary, national organisation providing both accurate and efficient solutions to diverse exploratory and strata assessment investigations both on land and over water.

Hagstrom Drilling has been built on the philosophy of providing “Quality Service Safely” ensuring the organisation continues to expand, diversify and strengthen its existing service capabilities through continuous improvement business strategy.
