As the company prepares for the future, we continue to evolve and grow to meet our customers' needs. We are a customer focused company with an innovative team conducting business in a responsible manner with a passion to win.
In 2008 DHP was acquired by Varel International which led to the formation of a holding company, Varel International Energy Services (VIES), the parent company of both DHP and Varel International.
In 2014 VIES was purchased by Sandvik AB of Sweden. Recent organizational changes within Sandvik AB have moved VIES reporting to the Mining and Rock Technology team. This transition will allow Sandvik AB to consolidate and manage similar product offerings of Rock Tools and VIES under the same leadership team. VIES will continue to operate as a stand-alone company within the Sandvik Group.
