What began as one man’s dream to own his own business has grown, in just a few short years, to a fleet of 100 trucks and over 150 employees stationed in Grande Prairie, AB.
In 2010, FluidPRO owner Chad McFarland purchased his first truck and leased on with another company. In 2012, he branched out on his own, started the FluidPRO name and began expanding his fleet.
Companies that specialize in moving fluid for the oilfield aren’t a new sight around Grande Prairie, or across the province. But it’s FluidPRO’s atmosphere and commitment to excellence that makes them stand out above the competition.
Treating their employees like family, and putting that family first and foremost, makes for happier employees and that translates into a better working relationship between the company and its clients. The company works well together and strives to be efficient and professional in all of its dealings.
In July 2017, the company took another leap forward and expanded its operations. The company is now run out of a 35,000-square-foot facility, with 13 bays, sitting on 10 acres of land.
This expansion means FluidPRO can serve its clients better. The company can provide an even better service program, accommodate more trucks inside and run an even better safety and maintenance program. FluidPRO can now take on bigger projects, and guarantee a supply for trucks.
“This expansion is also good for our employees,” said Wendy. “Now they have a better sense of where we’re headed.”
Going forward, growing even bigger is on the horizon for FluidPRO, branching out to different divisions of the Peace Country and setting up more locations.
There’s a reason the company is called FluidPRO, and that’s because they treat every customer like it’s their first and last job.
