Right Turn Supply, a leading provider of expert developed drilling fluids, custom tooling and premier solutions in the fields of HDD, Mining and Water Well, is thrilled to announce the promotion of Rick Johnson to the role of Commercial Business Manager.

With a career spanning over two decades in the HDD industry, Rick Johnson brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his new position. Rick’s journey in the sector began in 1996 at a well-known equipment dealership where he worked as a salesman and HDD specialist for 18 years, covering the expansive territory of Arizona and Southern Nevada.

His understanding of the industry was further enriched during his eight-year tenure with a popular walkover locating company, where he initially covered the Southwestern region (CA, AZ, NV, NM) and later transitioned to managing a team of eight, overseeing operations across North America.

In July 2023, Rick joined Right Turn Supply, assuming responsibility for the western 1/3 of the USA, including New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and beyond. In this role, he provided unmatched support to our dealer networks and customers, delivering expert guidance along with drilling fluids, tooling, and accessories.

“We knew when we brought Rick onto the team it would create a huge advantage for not only our business, but our partners and customers’s businesses, as well – and that couldn’t have been more correct,” said Tim Hutton, Founder & Partner at Right Turn Supply.
