SOCOTEC strengthens its site investigation capabilities with the rebrand of TOR Drilling Ltd

Following the 2021 acquisition, TOR Drilling Ltd has this week rebranded as SOCOTEC.

With a turnover of £140m and over 1,700 employees, the UK is the second most important geographical platform in the SOCOTEC Group after France. TOR Drilling is the fifth acquisition made by SOCOTEC UK since 2017.

Based in Glastonbury, Somerset, TOR has been involved in geotechnical, environmental and site investigation contracts since 1985 and is a specialist in in-situ bioremediation.  

Dan Coen, Managing Director, Infrastructure, SOCOTEC UK, says: “The rebrand of TOR Drilling as SOCOTEC will allow us to enhance our site investigation portfolio, adding capabilities such as sonic drilling, ground remediation, slope access platform and hollow stem drilling systems, further strengthening our technical expertise in the construction sector.”
