HOUSTON – Gardner Denver’s Petroleum & Industrial Pumps Division recently opened a 70,000 sq. ft. regional repair center in Odessa, Texas.

To mark the event, the company hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility on Wednesday, Nov. 11. U.S. Representative Mike Conaway attended, along with numerous Chamber of Commerce dignitaries and representatives from Odessa, Ector and Midland counties.

“To see Gardner Denver invest millions of dollars in the region with this world-class facility is extremely exciting and we welcome them to the area,” said Conaway.

Currently, the regional repair center employs over 50 full-time employees.

Already fully operational, the repair center features world-class processes and equipment, including advanced testing capabilities.

In a June 2015 survey conducted by Welling & Company, Gardner Denver was rated #1 in the quality of their mud and frac pumps, a segment in which they are also a market leader.

“We are pleased to open our new facility to serve our customers in the Permian Basin, providing best-in-class repairs, fluid ends and parts on-demand,” said Larry Kerr, VP and VP of the Petroleum and Industrial Pumps Division.

“This new facility enables Gardner Denver to deliver excellent customer service for our customers operating in this region.”

The drop in oil prices has had a profound effect on the region, but with 40 per cent of active rigs in North America operating in the Permian Basin, Kerr says this is an ideal place and time to expand Gardner Denver’s aftermarket and service capabilities — and to support the loss of customers’ in-house personnel.

“The opening of this facility demonstrates Gardner Denver’s commitment to investing in communities, creating local jobs and serving our customers with a world-class facility focused on the highest safety and sustainability standards,” said Saeid Rahimian, CEO for Gardner Denver’s Energy Group, who says repairs and builds can stay in the Permian Basin, resulting in more responsive service.
