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.
