Alberta Oil Tool began as a private company on May 31, 1951. In 1962, the company was purchased by Dover Corporation. Over the years, significant manufacturing capacity has been added. The Edmonton manufacturing facility is now at 80,000 square feet. In 2000, RG Industries, a 39,000 square foot plastics division was acquired. RG Industries specializes in the manufacturing of Sucker Rod Guides. This was followed by the acquisition of C-Tech Energy Services in 2005. C-Tech is an innovative oilfield technology company specializing in Coiled Sucker Rod and the design and manufacturing of upstream oilfield equipment. These strategic acquisitions will allow AOT to further expand its global presence as we export proven Canadian technology to the rest of the world.
