On December 1st, 2012, D&D Oilfield Rentals purchased Deranway Enterprises Ltd., an acquisition that involved over 200 pieces of rental equipment and will allow D&D to expand to meet the growing needs of their customers.
“I think it’s a great acquisition,” says Ken Goldade, general manager, D&D Oilfield Rentals. “Through the acquisition we are adding both quality and volume to our inventory while, at the same time, increasing the number of qualified and knowledge people in our company.”
This acquired inventory includes over 200 pieces of equipment including 185 well-site trailers, winch tractors with air ride trailers, lavatories, generators, loaders, and more.
“We now have everything under one roof so D&D can be a one-stop-shop for construction, pipeline, forestry, and oilfield companies wanting to get everything they are looking for in one place,” Goldade explains.
While Deranway excels in the well-site trailer business, and D&D has a large variety of tanks, pumps, and other smaller rental pieces, the two companies have come together to complement one another and offer customers more under one roof than the competition.
“There is no other company in the industry that offers as much diversity as we do,” says Wayne Poole, operations manager. “This means that with one phone call, we can offer the oil company all of their surface rental requirements.”
With D&D and Deranway working under the same roof, the company has over 40 years of experience in the rentals business combined, so not only is D&D now able to offer their customers a variety of high-quality equipment, but Poole says that they are also looking forward to continuing to provide these products at a reasonable price with superior service.
“With the acquisition, we now have an even greater amount of expertise and perspectives that can be brought to the table, so we can offer an even better experience to our customers,” he adds.
To the customer, this means immediate reaction to issues or concerns, should they happen to arise, with trained D&D service technicians on the road—often within the hour that a phone call is made.
In order to make this happen, communication also remains strong between D&D’s offices in Swift Current and Weyburn in Saskatchewan, as well as in Redcliff, Calgary, Lloydminster, Nisku, and most recently Acheson in Alberta, so that the needs of the customer can be met as quickly and efficiently as possible.
D&D can also be expected to expand into North Dakota in the near future, which will serve to complement their existing markets throughout Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia.
