Monark was founded in 1958 with the intention to serve the Norwegian market with high quality drilling tools, which we did for many years. The first 13 years Monark focused on the large construction and quarry market in Norway, until the company was bought by Boart Longyear in 1971.
From 1971 Monark became a part of the Boart Longyear family; this was the start of Boart Longyear Norway. When our company became a part of Boart Longyear we started to serve all corners off the globe with drilling tools.
We were a part of the Boart Longyear until 2005. In 2005 it was decided to go back to the original company name; Monark.
Monark AS is now a independent company known for our good quality products and skilled staff. We deliver drilling tools to more than 60 countries and are among the largest producers off Top Hammer Drilling Tools.
Late 2019 Monark bought the former Epiroc plant in Ockelbo Sweden, so today we produce at both locations.
Today the company produces about 500 000 drill rods annualy and 100 000 button bits.
