Energy & Environmental Services (EES), based in Edmond OK, recently acquired Oklahoma-based DR Graham Trucking.
“This is a great opportunity to expand a vital part of the company, which is product delivery,” said Troy Todd, EES chief operating officer.
“Most chemical manufacturers pay a third party to deliver their products or make their customers pick up orders. EES has offered delivery service for over 20 years, (and) as we grow, we need more trucks and drivers, so we bought a trucking company.”
EES said former Graham Trucking owner, Ray Graham, will remain with the company.
“I have been hauling overflow loads for EES since 2011, and I am extremely excited to have Graham Trucking within the EES family of companies,” Ray Graham said. “Logistics is the key to any business, and now I can focus my attention on this part of EES’s business.”
EES also recently signed a two-year toll blending agreement with Houston-based OSP, which offers microbial identification, testing and mitigation for energy-related, water-management markets in Canada and the United States. EES will produce registered biocides at its plant in Edmond OK.
As an EPA-certified producer, EES can manufacture registered biocides, which it sells to end users throughout multiple industries, including the oil and gas industry.
“Manufacturing a registered biocide in Oklahoma offers enormous savings opportunities for oil and gas companies in the region,” said Leon Joyce, EES CEO. “We are extremely fortunate to be working with a great company like OSP and their outstanding biocide products. We are one hour from the Scoop and Stack plays; two hours from Bartlesville and Ada OK, and three hours from Pampa TX and Great Bend KS. It just makes financial sense not to ship all the way from Houston.”
