Ervin Equipment Inc., a supplier of new and preowned transportation equipment, announced that it has expanded its services and expertise to better serve the oil and gas industry. The expansion will serve customers across the United States, including areas such as the Bakken region, Utica Shale, Eagle Ford Shale and Marcellus Shale.
“We’ve been serving the transportation industry for years, and have offered significant benefits to those fleets seeking to both buy and sell used equipment,” says Jeff Weber, vice president of sales and marketing at Ervin. “We spec the most popular models and work to ensure their quality and availability when and where the customer needs it. Now, we’re expanding and growing our services in the oil and gas industry where demand for equipment is at an all-time high.”
Weber estimates about half of Ervin’s clients in this sector are relatively new to the industry and in need of guidance when selecting equipment. “In addition to supplying complete fleets, our mission is to help educate these professionals to ensure they’re making the proper purchasing decisions,” he says. “We’re not here to sell something that will be ‘just fine.’ Rather, we want to broaden the knowledge of our customers, work with them to provide the ideal solution and ultimately form a lasting partnership. Our belief is long-term relationships are the best way to ensure our customers’ success.”
A large dealer of Wabash, Transcraft and many other manufacturers, Ervin’s fleets of oil and gas-specific equipment include vacuum trailers, pneumatic trailers, belly dumps, tanks, flatbeds and removable gooseneck trailers. Ervin says it buys and sells fleets of five to 5,000 trailers.
