Cate Drilling Solutions (CDS), a Cate Company, was created, designed, and is dedicated to focus entirely on one of Cate’s core business – the mining / precious mineral market. Our focus in this market is solely Rotary Blasthole and Crawler Rock Drill representation and is not diluted or divided by representing any other mining product. Drills are our number one concern and responsibility and the lifeblood of Drilling Solutions. Our core customer base consists of construction companies, municipalities, contract drillers, rock quarries, sand and gravel pits, as well as large mining companies such as Newmont, Barrick, Peabody Coal, Placer Dome, Arch Minerals, Coeur Rochester, and Kennecott Copper to name only a few.
Our dedication has resulted in Cate Drilling Solutions earning over 90% drill market share in the territorial regions we represent and earning the recognition to be considered a long term partner with our customers. The Atlas Copco Rotary and Crawler Drills (formerly Ingersoll-Rand drills) we represent can be found all over the world in various markets such as coal, gold, silver, phosphates, copper, molybdenum, lithium as well as rock, gravel, and sand quarries.
Cate’s history can be traced back to 1938 when the company was originally founded on three fundamental product categories, asphalt and concrete paving equipment, drills, and industrial/stationary air compressors. Evolution and necessity for a more specialized focus has resulted into separation into three (3) Cate divisions to offer specialized attention to these products with 5 branch locations in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, and Nevada. Cate now operates as Cate Equipment Company, Cate Drilling Solutions, and Cate Industrial.
Cate Drilling Solutions has become one of the largest Atlas Copco drill dealers in the world and ranks as the largest privately owned dealership for parts service in the world. CDS is the sole source for Rotary Blasthole Drill rebuilding in the western United States and has expanded our services to also include a 10,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art hydraulic and drill remanufacturing shop to better serve the needs of our customers. If your drilling is falling behind and requires a boost to catch up in production, Drilling Solutions is also the only Western USA dealership that can offer large Rotary Drills and Crawler Drills for short term or long term rental or lease. Our drill fleet is always ready to go unless already on rent.
