Load 'em up & Ship 'em out! Total Takes Distribution By Storm...
Total Equipment And Service has realized the need to expand operations into distribution services for many years, and in 2012 that became reality. We quickly expanded our North Texas footprint to include a new facility east of Dallas, just off I-30, in Greenville. The new center's main purpose was originally to increase flow for in-house production, but adding the ability to serve our customers parts and service needs in a timely fashion quickly became a crucial element.
The objective at T.E.A.S is to provide customers with a industry-leading delivery of 120-days or less on all new orders of coiled tubing, double pump and nitrogen units. This challenging goal requires necessary components on hand and immediately available when the assembly begins, eliminating delays controlled by supplier lead times. On-time deliveries are important to our customers and we work hard to be efficient and accurate to achieve that!
Heading up the Greenville team is Craig Gillentine, Distribution General Manager. "We're really setup to service any company that operates in the oil and gas industry. We think the customer can benefit from our ability to quickly support all their equipment needs, and not necessarily limited to T.E.A.S. equipment." states Gillentine. He adds "Total Equipment has become an ideal go-to maintenance and repair supplier for any customer that has purchased any type of equipment recently." His well-founded reasoning is that Total Equipment And Service builds equipment and knows it inside and out, thus making us the logical choice to help maintain and repair the equipment. Both job buyers and commodity buyers are staffed to ensure we've got everything readily available and at a competitive price.
Our 123,000sf distribution center,including 10,000sf of office space, sits on 10 acres with an adjoining 17 acres ready and waiting for the next expansion. The center is equipped with two 10-ton bridge cranes for loading and offloading heavy equipment and contains 32,000sf of rack storage currently holding $8M of inventory and growing with ever-changing customer requested stock. Our warehouse is strategically configured to stage, prep and pull parts quickly, allowing for all shipments to be scheduled within minutes not days. The warehouse currently offers same-day shipments for a wide variety of consumables; such as filters and our new fluid end service kits (containing valves, seats, plungers, hard packs, soft packs, flange seals, clamps and pony rod housings).
Our distribution center also has dedicated space to perform sub-assembly operations. We are currently performing simple air filter assemblies and completing our CT injector chains. All of the components are in place for customer specified assembly operations when needed. This expansive building is also efficient in other ways, including energy. When T.E.A.S. purchased this existing structure in 2012, zoned high output fluorescent lighting was installed providing a cost conscious lighting improvement for warehouse operations. The facility is also equipped with motion sensors throughout that automatically turn lights off after five minutes of inactivity.
Growth has been good for Total Equipment And Service. We are excited for what's in store for the future of our distribution center. It's just another reason we are "A Total Solution for Oilfield Equipment".
