History ofVortex

Vortex Production Services is a leading provider of premium polyurethane panel buildings and wholesale polyurethane panels across diversified industries along with mechanical services for the production and processing of oil and gas and industrial applications.  Started in 2003 as CH4 Compression,  the company has grown organically,  and through acquisitions. Shelter King Steel Buildings was acquired in 2005. Compact 2000 (Complete Package Technology 2000) was acquired in 2007. Magna Machine Shop, led by Ken Osborne, joined the company in 2008 and added significant experience and talent to our western and central operations of Alberta. Prior to the employee buyout of the company in 2012, the combined companies operated under the name Strad Compression & Production, a division of Strad Energy Services.

The company operates three divisions.  Our Services Division has one of the largest fleets of mechanical service trucks in Western Canada, operated by the most experienced team of heavy duty mechanics, with coverage across Alberta reaching into Saskatchewan and British Columbia.  Our Insulated Panel Solutions Division is a premium manufacturer of polyurethane panel buildings and distributor of wholesale polyurethane panels for the oil and gas, agricultural, recreational, construction and infrastructure industries.  Our Packaging Retrofit Division assists with some of the industry’s most sophisticated oilfield production and processing equipment, retuning existing equipment to like new condition.

An exception to the industry, over 60% of the Vortex team has been with the company over 5 years, and 40% have been team members for over 10 years.
