Propipe Group Ltd. was formed as a small business in 2004, headed by Mike Esfarjani. At the time, Propipe completed welding and fabrication work out of a small 3,000 square foot shop on the west end of Grande Prairie, Alberta.
In 2005, Propipe expanded into a much larger 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the North Prairie McRae industrial park in Grande Prairie. Over the next few years, an additional 5,000 square feet of space was added as well as a state-of-the-art stress relieving oven, sandblasting booths and priming and painting facilities.
In the same year, Propipe Group Ltd. branched out to include Propipe Field Services to meet the growing client demand for field installation and construction of oilfield facilities. Later, this division became the local head office for all Propipe operations.
Additional manufacturing capacity was brought online in 2009 with the opening of the brand new 8,000 square foot Pouce Coupe, BC manufacturing facility. Located in British Columbia, this facility allowed Propipe to better access and service clients throughout northern BC and western Alberta. Additional expansion is expected in the coming years with a new 120,000 square foot manufacturing facility planned for Grande Prairie, as well as further expansion at the Pouce Coupe facility.
Propipe Group Ltd. currently employs over 250 employees and continues to expand its workforce as new projects are undertaken. Propipe’s respectable client list in the oilfield industry includes Shell, Encana, Apache, Monterey and more. Propipe’s client base grows, as Propipe continues to set the standard in the industry for quality, on-time delivery, best cost and highest efficiency when pitted against competitors.
Propipe utilizes innovative technologies and processes to ensure that products and services meet the highest standards that clients look for. Propipe is actively developing a leading edge web-based system to enable the utmost efficiency and communication between the project delivery tracking system and the Client. This dynamic powerhouse of dedicated professionals, industry-leading technology and full service facilities enable Propipe to be hailed as the first choice in the industry.
