Carlson Energy Announces new Master Distributor Relationships

October 14, 2013 – Wichita, Kansas, USA 

In advance of the upcoming LAGCOE in Lafayette, Louisiana, Carlson Energy announces three new Master Distributor Agreements.

“With the addition of Clutchco International, Hess Services and PEMCO of New Mexico to the Carlson Energy team, we’re now able to provide our experienced application engineering and support directly to the Well Servicing community,” said Maynard Wood, President of Carlson Company. “Our new Master Distributor team will be our ‘boots on the ground’, in the oilfield everyday, working to educate and service their customers.”

According to Russ Chapman, Carlson Energy’s Regional Sales Manager, “Carlson’s unique product designs are much less parts intensive, with a much simpler, user-friendly installation process, which is best demonstrated – in the oilfield – by our new team of Master Distributors.”

Furthering their commitment to customer service, each Master Distributor will hold a stocking inventory, enabling them to offer the quick problem solving and turnaround their customers – and the industry – demand.

Made in the USA
While the technology is unique in the industry, of particular note is the fact that Carlson Energy’s products are made in the USA – Wichita, Kansas to be exact.

The Heavy Duty Brakes, Rotors and Clutches  – designed specifically for use on well servicing rigs and wireline trucks; for onshore and offshore applications – compete directly with Canadian and Chinese-made products and are rapidly gaining acceptance in the marketplace.
