Our History

The story started in 1994 in Calgary, as Newsco Directional & Horizontal Services Inc., the company that was one of the pioneers in directional drilling services as well as technological innovation with many inventions to its credit. Over the years, the business went through ownership and structural changes but continued to be known as the Newsco group with its very well known tool brand “Telemetrix” offering an expansive tool range across a wide geographical domain.

In tandem with the industry changes, the company adjusted itself and divested the Telemetrix brand and its USA operations in 2021 to consolidate its position, making it nimble and at the same time focusing on core markets for best optimization of resources. As a result, Newtel is ready in its refurbished and rejuvenated form under a new name “Newtel,” which reflects the lineage from all past businesses while training its sight on future growth. Newtel is all set to ensure continuing best services in the market it remains in and at the same time stays prepared for new opportunities including new services and new technology through collaborative arrangements where everybody wins.
