Vortex Production Services is a leading provider of oil and gas production and processing equipment and services in Western Canada. 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. Led by Paul Eakins, Compact 2000 provided the company with extensive experience and a stellar reputation in design and engineering. 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 Packaging Division designs and packages highly technical production equipment as well as conventional compression and power generation packages. 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 Structures Division is a premium manufacturer of polyurethane panel buildings and distributor of wholesale polyurethane panels for the oilfield and construction industries.
An exception to the industry, over 60% of the Vortex team has been with the company over 5 years, and 30% have been team members for over 10 years.
