Big D Equipment Company was established in September 1977 and we started out lining reserve pits for the energy industry. As business grew, we pursued ancillary products and services that would benefit our existing customers as well as appeal to potential customers in different sectors of the industry. We began adding products and services offerings that were innovative and cost-effective for our customers.
In our early years, the industry standard was to use steel pipe for transporting water from reserve pits. Our founders envisioned a better way and we added polyethylene pipe. Poly pipe provided the perfect complementary product to our lining business because it was lightweight, easier to install, and less expensive. The opportunity to improve the process of water supply was intriguing, so we acquired a spooling truck and welding equipment.
From there, Big D Equipment Company expanded exponentially by adding more and more services to accommodate our growing list of customers. In the past 50 plus years, we added everything from trash trailers and light towers to generators and a wide variety of fencing options. In the last several years, we have expanded even more by offering water treatment, automation and drone services so that we could provide a single, all-inclusive source of drilling and production services for our customers.
