H. Anger's Söhne - Drilling and well construction company - since 1863



H Anger’s Söhne (HAS): our competence means success for your projects!

Experience of 160 years, technology of today and continuous development: this is what helps us to support your projects in the areas of water, heat and natural resources.

Heinrich Anger established the Company as a “business for the construction of wells and pumps” in Nordhausen/ Thüringen in 1863. Today, H Anger’s Söhne has become one of the leading medium-sized companies in the German drilling industry. During these past 160 years, from the historical roots to this day, the Company’s range of services has been expanded considerably, especially so since the change of management in 1998. Drilling, maintenance, refurbishment, workover and abandoned mine management: H Anger’s Söhne has become firmly established as a competent all-round provider for well constructions and shallow as well as deep drilling. This includes wells for water resources, geothermal heat as well as for exploration and development of oil and gas reservoirs and for the mining industry in Germany and Europe from the very beginnings of a project until its completion – and beyond.

So what exactly distinguishes this Company from others? The Company prides itself on the combination of technical expertise and service: two virtues that complement each other in a special way. In other words: H Anger’s Söhne offers high technical competence as well as many years of experience and conducts its business to the highest professional and quality standards – to the benefit of its customers. Strong commitment, always and everywhere, forms the basis for our successful projects. This concept is an integral part of our culture and the guarantee to our clients such that they are able to focus on their own core business.

The declared aim of our Company’s daily business is the continuous increase of quality and efficiency. In this way we are able to strengthen the competitiveness of our clients. There are also other factors that contribute to the natural, continuous development of HAS including activities in the field of research and development such as the construction of our own drilling rigs or the support of scientific research wells and of an art project that was part of the renowned art exhibition documenta 6 (the “Vertical Earth-kilometre”, an art project by Walter de Maria), as well as investments in new technologies.

The firmly entrenched safety management that has the benefit of active support within our Company enables us not only to organize every working process in a safely manner, but also to guarantee the health protection of every single employee.

Furthermore, advanced vocational training on safety and an incentive system for accident-free work help to support our aim to maintain and promote the well-being of each single person. Another important aspect of our sustainable and future-oriented corporate policy is environmental protection. Consequently, H Anger’s Söhne not only meets current environmental standards but even exceeds them.

The basis of the Company’s economic and technological success is a team of 200 highly qualified and motivated employees in all divisions of the Company.

The supporting administration, logistics and workshops provide the foundation for the successful realisation of a project on location. Continuous advanced training programmes, together with participation of company representatives in the respective committees of experts, will continue to provide excellence in customer service in the future. This made it possible, for example, to reintroduce the profession of skilled worker in deep drilling in an association of companies.

H Anger’s Söhne is well prepared for the future with the experience of 160 years, the technological competence of today and the commitment to continuous development.
