October has been a busy month for GenTex, as our fabrication shop is currently working on a variety of oilfield equipment for our clients. The oilfield equipment we are in the process of manufacturing includes several 70M GH-165 Hot Oil Units, a 4992 TEX-STEAMER, and a totally enclosed, trailer-mounted Hot Oil Unit for one of our best customers, Little Red Services. This 70M GH-600 Hot Oil Unit is designed to weather the harsh climate of Alaska (unit featured in photo above).
In other news, we are currently preparing to promote our oilfield equipment at yet another oil show this month in Salvador, Brazil, for the ‘Brazil Onshore 2008’ conference. This show is geared more towards onshore exploration, including well servicing, which is a sector that is of interest to GenTex, as we specialize in the manufacturing of oilfield equipment for well servicing applications. For more information on our oilfield equipment's vast application possibilities, please visit www.gentex.ca/products.asp.
In addition to a busy month of fabrication and oil shows, GenTex managed to squeeze in a brief facility tour for Innovative Manufacturing Works (IMW). (For more information about IMW, please visit http://www.manufacturinginnovation.ca/). The tour was intended to introduce participants to the manufacturing sector, and emphasize how important manufacturing is in Alberta. Each company that participated was asked to share with tour participants what makes them innovative, and GenTex chose to highlight how our practical knowledge of how to operate the oilfield equipment we manufacture makes us unique. This in-depth knowledge of oilfield equipment has strengthened our research and development at GenTex, as well as enables us to create one-of-kind training programs for the equipment we build.
