About Us: News & Resources


Since its inception in 1994, Rigmaster Machinery Ltd. has continuously proven itself as a Canadian leader in drilling rig equipment design and manufacture.

Our philosophy is straight forward: build simple, top quality machines while continuously looking for improvements in both design and safety.


At Rigmaster Machinery, the design is a combination of traditional, proven manufacturing philosophies and imagination. The highly effective Rigmaster design team draws from over seventy years of experience and ingenuity in heavy machinery development.  Using one of the most advanced solid modeling software packages available, they design new prototypes, modify existing designs and prepare custom layouts accurately and quickly.  With this system, they are able to visualize any component or subassembly of a rig from any angle, in color, without fabricating a single part.

Detail can range from the interference of a bearing in a gearbox housing to the layout of an entire rig, complete with animation.  This 3D modeling is accomplished using the Autodesk Inventor software package.

Shielded Arc Welding


Welding at Rigmaster Machinery is performed in accordance with Canadian Welding Bureau Standards and Practices (CWB). Third-Party welding companies involved are (CWB) certified. Machined and fabricated rotating equipment is prepared by ISO-certified parties.

Metallurgical quality control and control of material certificates is done in-house.
