Henderson Rigs Dreams Big

Not an ad.  This is from a newsletter that we believe will interest our readers.

In April of 2016, we leased our first 5,000 square foot facility and were in the process of applying for our own API Q1 license. For the previous three years, we’d been growing the business very carefully, while focusing on providing our customers a very unique and satisfying experience.
Today, we employ nearly200 full-time employees, occupy more than 200,000 square feet of warehouse and workshop spanning five facilities across thousands of miles, and have a dozen API licenses or certifications. My dream of creating a new kind of service company is now shared by some of the most respected industry veterans and professionals in the O&G industry, and I remain humbled and grateful. Read more…
Growing a business fast comes with many challenges, particularly when you mix inacquisitions, opening new facilities, integrations and plant consolidations, acquiring talent, and a moving target in the price of oil.
However, we’ve managed to do so responsibly and intentionally by having a big vision while remaining focused on the building blocks required for a solid foundation. We continue to pursue our goal of being our customers’ first call, while making an impact in the lives ofour peoplecommunities, and industry. Yes, we actually do all of that. Not always perfectly, but nevertheless, we are striving to be great; a Small Giant.
Humble, Kind, & Hungry
Humbly, we acknowledge that the industry has taken notice, and we are honored, and are committed in remaining responsible in our determination of doing the right thing, no matter the cost.
We believe handshakes still matter, and that truth and transparency always prevail. Our team has been working very hard over the past year in preparation for what we all believe will be at least a few years of needed stability. I can say with confidence that we are ready, thanks largely to many of our customers who have provided us with numerousopportunities to serve them, and the grace we needed when we missed the mark. Thank you!
This year is a year of focus for our team; on improving our systems and processes, efficiencies, communication, and overall customer experience. If you’d like to experience the difference, we welcome you to contact us.
Dan Henderson, CEO
