Celle Technology Center - Hot Spot For Geothermal Research

The Christensen Diamond Products manufacturing plant opened in Celle, Germany, in 1957. The facility built diamond core heads and drill bits and later expanded to make downhole tools. In 1977, the Celle engineering and manufacturing team introduced the Navi-Drill™ line of downhole drilling motors.

After a series of mergers and acquisitions that began in the late 1970s, the facility became part of Baker Hughes in 1990 with the acquisition of Eastman Christensen. Other innovations developed in Celle include the industry’s first steerable motor system and the AutoTrak™ rotary steerable closed-loop system.
