Operated under a Technology Transfer Agreement with Smith Tools USA, Smith remained as a Technical Partner until 1990, at which time Greaves, with their strong corporate business and engineering heritage, took over and continued in Nashik to develop and build on the pillars of the advanced technology acquired from Smith Tools Inc.
More recently, DBI has formed a strategic partnership with Drilformance Technologies, a world leader in PDC Technology to continue to develop, implement, and market new technologies to a global customer base.
