The oil and gas industry is an integral part of Alberta, Canada and
our global economy. Alberta Oil Tool (AOT) (see
plays a similar role within the oil and gas sector, providing the latest
oilfield products and keeping step with the industry's changing demands.
Alberta Oil Tool began as a private company on May 31, 1951. In 1962,
the company was purchased by Dover Corporation (see
Over the years, significant manufacturing capacity has been added. The
Edmonton manufacturing facility is now at 80,000 square feet. In 2000,
RG Industries, a 39,000 square foot plastics division was acquired.
RG Industries specializes in the manufacturing of Sucker Rod Guides.
This was followed by the acquisition of C-Tech Energy Services in 2005.
C-Tech is an innovative oilfield technology company specializing in
Coiled Sucker Rod and the design and manufacturing of upstream oilfield
equipment. These strategic acquisitions will allow AOT to further expand
its global presence as we export proven Canadian technology to the rest
of the world.
AOT's customer base is comprised, for the most part, of major oil industry
supply stores across Canada. A smaller percentage of Alberta Oil Tools
customers are non-oil related (industrial, chemical, pulp and paper).
In an effort to maintain its market leadership, AOT continues to increase
its customer base to better service the Canadian and export oil patch.
Ongoing investment in research and development ensures the continuing
suitability of mature products as well as launching new products to
fuel future growth.
