Our History

Rieschick Drilling Company was established in 1947 when Milton and Carol Rieschick purchased D. H. Kuhlman Drilling and Pump Service. Milton had worked for D. H. for several years and when D.H. was looking to pursue other endeavors, Milton and Carol took the opportunity to further their careers.

In 1953 Milton purchased his first new well rig and the business has grown in leaps and bounds ever since. Milton and Carol went on to have a beautiful family of five children. Roy worked with his dad while he was growing up and went on to attend the University of Nebraska. In 1972 Roy graduated with a B.S. in Geology and came back to Falls City to resume work with his father. In 1975 Milton sadly passed away, but had Roy and Carol ready and willing to continue the family business.

In 1990, Carol decided to retire and handed the reigns over to Roy and Kathy who continue to handle all business operations to this day. Their two sons, Ryan and Andrew grew up working with the business. Ryan attended UNL from 1990-1993 taking Geology and continues to work for Rieschick Drilling Co. today. Andrew attended UNL from 2005-2009 and graduated with a Civil Engineering degree and will most likely move back to Falls City in the future to run the family business with his brother.
