ROIL - A Brief History

Roil Energy originally started life as Steve Rutherford welding.  It was Steve’s integrity, reliability, and commitment to his craft – in combination with his expertise as a craftsman and innovator with over 40 years’ experience in the welding and fabrication industry that allowed him to excel as a locally owned and operated company serving the Grande Prairie and Peace region since 1996.

Roil Energy is now in its 20th year of providing exceptional service to our valued clients and we haven’t forgotten our roots as a company that is based on continuous innovation, intelligent designs and attention to detail that sets our work apart. 

Over the course of our 20 years we have trained dozens of our employees in picker truck operation and specialty “in building” lifts as well as welding, pipefitting, plant and field maintenance, carpentry and mechanical services and we have grown our fleet into a wide range of trucks and equipment. Today, we put picker trucks, ‘hot-shot’ and light hauling units, tool trucks and portable welding units on the road each day.

Our partners work in industries that demand adaptability and a high bandwidth of service and support. After years of successful business, our clientele is as diverse as the needs we meet for them.
