The Raeburn name has been synonymous with drilling since the mid-1940s.
Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd (RDG) is based in Central Scotland with offices located strategically throughout the UK in Aberdeen, Glasgow, London and Birmingham. Since the inception of the business in 1985, RDG has grown significantly through acquisition, innovation and investment in long-term Client relationships. RDG is a highly successful award-winning Company capable of delivering high quality multimillion-pound Ground Investigation projects within programme, safely and to budget.
RDG started as a rotary drilling Company. The purchase of several companies in the early 1990’s saw rapid growth and the creation of Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd. This included the introduction of geologists, geotechnical and civil engineers, environmental scientists and a new UKAS laboratory facility, which led to an increase in overall capability. Further acquisitions in the early 2000’s saw the addition of consultancy and laboratory testing facilities in London and Birmingham, which enabled the Company to expand UK-Wide.
