Working in the oil and gas industry presents many unique challenges that are often unpredictable. An oilfield service provider can face many difficulties, especially working in such a cyclical industry where commodity prices can change. How do the best service companies not only survive but succeed and grow? Operational excellence – by delivering a strong balance of quality, price and product/service excellence – providing exactly what the customer wants, to not only get the job done efficiently and on time, but safely as well.
Owned by industry veterans Bob Williamson, Marty O’Bray and Larry Patriquin, Little Guy Oilfield Rentals recognizes these key attributes, acknowledging that customers need an efficient, cost effective and safe solution to meet their needs. “We balance pricing in a tough environment with operating excellence that saves our customers time and money” says Marty O’Bray. “We pride ourselves on giving our customers value added service from the time their mats leave the yard until the time they return,” adds O’Bray.
Operating from their head office in Leduc, Alberta, Little Guy provides customers throughout Western Canada with access matting solutions that can overcome any jobsite obstacle. As a result of their experience and innovation, Little Guy not only provides access matting to the oil and gas industry, but also provides access matting solutions to customers for pipeline, construction, environmental remediation, utility, municipal and remote camp applications as well as special events.
“For each industry application, we offer our customers various options for accessing their site quickly and efficiently. We provide turn-key operations for our customers, right from planning their site requirements, delivery of the matting with our own trucks and installation. When the job is finished, we also have the ability to pull the mats and clean them on-site before they are moved to our customer’s next site or to another customer’s site,” says Bob Williamson. Mr. Williamson went on to mention that when he is asked “when can you start moving our mats?” Little Guy’s answer is always the same, “we’re already loading them,” because meeting the needs their customers is always at the top of Little Guy’s list.
