About Petroleum Equipment & Services, Inc.
Our Company's History
Petroleum Equipment & Services, Inc. (PESI) was founded in 1983 with a two-fold concept of service. Bring to the Alaska market place products and services not currently available and/or offer customers a competitive alternative to existing suppliers. Provide an economical solution to companies wanting to enter this unique market.
Petroleum Equipment & Services, Inc. is a broad based operation that has expanded its philosophy of service and marketing strategy to other areas. In 1999 PESI acquired MRO Sales, Inc., also an Alaska based corporation that offered similar services but was geared with more of an industrial focus. MRO is currently operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of PESI. MRO has a strong in-house sales team that reduces customers’ procurement costs by offering a single source purchasing point. Additionally, MRO’s outside sales force interacts with customers daily to insure their satisfaction and to offer solutions to situations as they arise.
As MRO has continued to grow it also acquired another company in PESI & MRO, added a service division in 2000 that has trained personnel to operate various tools and equipment for the companies we represent. Our field personnel are rig savvy and maintain the corporate standard of quality service.
In 2001 Petroleum Equipment and Services purchased Molec-U-Tech which has allowed MRO to expand its company representation and offer an even greater variety of products to our customers.
PESI has also created an LLC named Alaska Sales & Technology (ASTECH). ASTECH is a specialty company that offers an environmentally safe method of cleaning Thread-Protectors for the petroleum industry. As a result of these expanded representations and acquisitions PESI has grown from an idea to a company with multi-million dollar annual sales. We have gone from a single small office to a state-of-the-art facility with 11,000 sq. ft. including 17 offices and warehouse space. We also have two satellite offices in Alaska one located on the North Slope and another in Kenai Alaska.
Through the years PESI has survived the economic swings of the petroleum industry and as a result the companies PESI represents have had continuous representation in Alaska. While other companies have closed their operations and moved out, our companies maintained a presence and we are strategically in place for the inevitable upswing. After over 21 years our customers know they can count on us to be here for them.
