About RigPro, Inc.
RigPro, Inc. has over 30 years of experience in providing quality parts, tools and supplies to the oilfield well servicing industry. Our background in servicing workover rigs during the boom years of the early 1980s and the lessons we learned from the bust years that followed have put RigPro in a unique position to serve our customers.
During our many years in the well servicing industry we have developed and maintained extensive contacts throughout the industry and are grateful for the many, many customers that we have the privilege of serving. We promise to continue to provide the best parts, tools and supplies at a reasonable, value-based price for the well servicing industry.
We carry rig components, tools and expendables from such vendors as Garrison Manufacturing, WPT Power, Crosby, Gearench, Integrated Equipment, NOV Gill and XBrake. In addition, we have repair kits available for all parts that we sell and service.
We also offer refurbished oilfield well servicing equipment. Check the For Sale section of our site for a full list of the current refurbished equipment available.
RigPro, Inc. has been an active member of the Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) since our company was founded. Our owner and president, Blake Hightower, served as the program chairman for the East Texas chapter in the 1980’s. The AESC operates through a network of national committees and local chapters to address safety, technology, environmental, insurance, governmental, training, oilfield theft, and other issues of common concern for energy service companies.
RigPro, Inc was founded in July, 1999 in Kilgore, Texas by Blake Hightower and Jerry Blalack. Blake and Jerry drew from their years of experience with Johnston-Lawrence to build RigPro into one of the most respected companies in the oilfield well servicing industry. Today Blake is the sole owner and president of RigPro.
Over the years, Blake has built a dedicated team that he considers to be some of the best in the business. In his own humble words, “No profile of RigPro would be complete without naming them – Jarrod Hightower, Cindy Carpenter, Ashley Jones, Randy Crocker, Clyde Alvis, Tom Patterson, Bryant Fluornoy, Curtis Edney, Dustin Marcell, and C.F. Reynolds. I couldn’t do this business without them.” The combined experience of everyone at RigPro has given the company the know-how and durability to weather the ever-changing cycle of boom and bust in the oil industry.
Most of all, RigPro values the many customers that we have worked with over the years. Some of our customers have been in the business for over 40 years now and it is our pleasure to work with their second-generation of leadership.
RigPro has been an active member of the Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) for many years now and Blake served as the program chairman for the East Texas chapter in the early 1980’s.
