It All Started With One Unit!
Back in 2003, Rick Hamon, Tim Alexander and Mark Wiegt bought one unit. Rick and Mark had worked together at Arkoma Compression. Rick and Tim had worked together at Hanover Compression. They combined their money and bought Unit #001. Then there was the discussion of what to call the new company. After much discussion about companies they had all worked for in the past and what to do different, the unanimous decision was to be a SERVICE ORIENTED COMPANY. Thus the company name was born – SERVICE COMPRESSION.
The Trio then bought more units via any means possible – used, new, company owned and leased back options. Service Compression has survived the ups and downs of the oil patch, adding units along the way and providing superior service to their customers. Over time the fleet has grown to over 375 units when the decision was made to merge with Metallenium PROS, LLC out of Lubbock, Texas in May of 2017. This decision has proven to be a really good one. Tim and Rick stayed on as owner operators and continue running Service Compression. The new management team has the same vision and commitment to SERVICE as before.
