About Company

Nova Scotia Department of Environment is the regulating body for everything to do with water wells.  They issue Drilling and Pump Installing licences as well as investigate any complaints or issues residents may have. 


Hub Well Drilling was founded by Oran Johnson in 1918, originally under the title O.S. Johnson Well Drilling. The humble beginnings saw Oran running a small horse drawn machine providing water to various members of the community.  Truro, Nova Scotia, Well Drilling, Water, Pump Systems, Geothermal, Drilling, Driller, Exploration, Monitoring, Tanks, Submersible, Jet, Pumps Truro, Nova Scotia, Well Drilling, Water, Pump Systems, Geothermal, Drilling, Driller, Exploration, Monitoring, Tanks, Submersible, Jet, Pumps After serving with the Royal Canadian Navy in World War 2 Oran's son Ivan became involved with the business in 1945.  As demand increased with growing populations, the company expanded to a couple of cable tool rigs and eventually the purchase of our first rotary in 1973.

Greg took over the operations after Ivan's death in 1986 and has since evolved the company's operations drastically. An office and service facility was constructed at our current site on the Salmon River road in 1993. Hub Well Drilling now operates two large rotary rigs, along with two 1500 gallon water trucks, and a pump/well repair service vehicle. 

Greg's oldest son, Brian, represents the fourth generation to work within the business.  After completing a BBA in 2005 , he worked towards becoming a licenced Driller and Pump Installer.  He is currently involved with all day to day operations while also serving on varying boards and committees within the industry.
