About Us

Our Team

Bradley & Son’s is a family-owned and operated business, serving the Central Valley for more than 40 years, through three generations of Bradley’s.

The company started in 1976 when Doug and Kim Bradley saw that there was a growing need in the valley for domestic water well-drilling and pump services. They liked the idea of being their own bosses and building something that their sons could be a part of, so they reached out to other family members who had already been established in the agricultural business. Those family members were interested in expanding into domestic water-supply systems and Bradley & Son’s Well Drilling was born.

Their sons, Rick and Rod Bradley, run the business now. Both of them started at the ground floor and have worked and gained experience in every aspect of the business – from digging trenches to installing pumps to drilling long hours far from home and more. While they are glad to now be managing the company operations, they still do not hesitate to get their hands dirty.

Bradley & Son’s is now into our third-generation of Bradley family members working in the business.  We also have several employees that have been with our company 10, 20, even 30 years!  They have become family as well as an important part of our team.

Our business has grown and changed through the years, but one thing has remained constant – our commitment to providing excellent customer service to all of our customers!  And, as Mom (Kim) said (and painted on the office wall as a constant reminder):

“Promise only what you can deliver, then deliver more than you promise”

Our Equipment

We build a great deal of our own equipment including the drilling rigs, shaker units, and water trucks. Our team includes welders, concrete guys, and people who can fabricate metal parts as needed. We can fix and build our own equipment as well as repair, build, and fabricate whatever is needed for the well. We have an extensive inventory.

We use rotary mud drilling because we know that rotary mud drilling is the most efficient, versatile, and dependable method of drilling. Our experience and care mitigates any possible damage to associated formations by preventing the intrusion of fluid into the formation.

We have enough equipment to have as many as 16 jobs going in one day. This allows us to respond quickly to your domestic or residential service or well-drilling need or to have multiple commercial or agricultural projects working at once.

Contact us at 559-441-1401 to find out if we have the specific commercial, agricultural, or environmental water testing, drilling, or service equipment needed to complete your project.
