President and CEO of Aveda Transportation and Energy Services, Ronnie Witherspoon, talks about the company’s refurbishment program that is sure to improve profitability.
Alberta based Aveda Transportation has grown into one of the largest rig moving companies in North America. They provide safe, rapid and reliable transport of rigs, work sites and related equipment across the United States and Canada. After joining the company in 2016, President and CEO Ronnie Witherspoon, turned the company around from it’s all-time low.
Over the last four quarters we got seven million dollar improvement quarter over quarter. Then in our most recent quarter, we had about a nine million improvement when we compared the same quarters to the previous year.
Our actual target market is going to depend on which base we are talking about in particular. But I guess in broad terms in general we work for large drilling contractors. Same way with the operators; large, small operators, large independents, medium independents. A long list of blue chip customers to the likes of HMP, Nabors, Chevron, Shell, Precision, Trinidad, the list goes on and on.
We’re really excited about our refurbishment program, I think it’s going to be great to see more of our kit get on the road and a higher utilization of our assets, less dependence on our third parties and I think that will really set us up for 2018 and really improve our profitability as we navigate through 2018.
