Tulsa Rig Iron Celebrates Expansion with Open House, Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Tulsa Rig Iron, Kiefer, Okla., celebrated its recent new manufacturing facility expansion Aug. 25 with an Open House and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony.

The fourth quarter of 2013 market a significant company milestone for Tulsa Rig Iron as it doubled its production facility size to more than 100,000 sq ft. The new state-of-the-art facility sits on 20 acres in Kiefer, Okla., just outside of Glenpool and houses a blast-and-paint booth, bake oven, along with other cutting-edge manufacturing technology, allowing the company to manufacture multiples of its 53-ft maxi systems at once.

This expansion required a significant investment of more than $4 million but was necessary to enable Tulsa Rig Iron to reach its target production increase of 25 percent. Up until the expansion, the company average 40 employees but has since increased that number to 54, with plans to expand its workforce by 20 percent by the second quarter of 2015, company officials said, noting that half of its current staff has 10-plus years of experience with the company.

Family-owned since its inception in 1987, Tulsa Rig Iron is led today by brothers Trevor and Troy Young. Regarded by many in the industry as the leading designer and manufacturer of mud pumps and mud recycling systems for the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) industry, its pumps are also used extensively for reverse circulation, hydrostatic testing, and well workover applications in the oil and gas and pipeline industry. Contractors around the globe use its products for economic, as well as environmental reasons. Recycling the drilling mud can save contractors up to 70 percent in mud volume usage and greatly reduces disposal concerns for the spent mud. All of Tulsa Rig Iron’s products are designed to be easily serviced in the field for reduced downtime in maintenance.
