Layne Legacy

Our Legacy

Layne has a rich and diverse history dating back to 1882 where we began as a domestic water-well drilling company in South Dakota. From those humble roots, we have evolved into a global water and minerals and solutions provider serving both public and private sectors. 

Safety by Choice

Safety is about people, not projects. Safety is about stories, not statistics. Our safety culture is underpinned with relationship-based training, shared knowledge, and engagement at every level of our organization.  Safety is about connecting people. An authentic commitment from all will elevate our program, achieving safety success and ultimately – achieving zero injuries. Safety is deeply personal. At Layne, we are responsible for making safe choices not only for ourselves, but for those around us. We must take care of each other.


Conserving our natural resources is more than a vital part of our business—it’s an ethical obligation for sustainable development. We operate in an environmentally conscientious and socially responsible manner, always focused on improving the quality of life for the people and communities in which we live and work.
