About Us

BUILD THE BEST PRODUCTS, SERVE EACH CUSTOMER LIKE A PARTNER

The SPOC Automation story begins deep in the unconventional gas fields of the Black Warrior Basin. Working with across-the-line motor starters and controls in the coal bed methane industry, we discovered that variable frequency drives allowed a beam pump to operate without a dynamic brake chopper or resistors and could also be applied to pumps that were de-watering methane gas wells. It was quickly apparent that this automation solution could save energy and increase production throughout the oil and gas industry.

We designed our first product, IronHorse, to control beam pumps. Shortly after, we engineered the sensorless pump off control software (SPOC), which reduced utility energy consumption and peak charges, setting the standard for future products and the industry as a whole.

Everything we make, from software to hardware, is specifically engineered for the harsh conditions of the oil field.

Other products followed: Subduer ESP and HPS Injection Pump Drives. Each product is the result of intense research and development, followed by extensive testing in the field. The time we spend working with actual users is a central component of our company, and it is something we take seriously. Everything we make, from software to hardware, is specifically engineered for the harsh conditions of the oil field.

Today, we are known for developing technology that allows users to get more product out of the ground, making this technology robust and easy to use. Our customers also say the service we provide is second to none. We didn’t just make up our title of “North America’s largest independent artificial lifts controls manufacturer.” We earned it.

The oil and gas industry will change in the future.  And when it does, we’ll
be there adapting with the times to ensure that our applications fit your needs perfectly.

Committed to Serve

Dealing with the people at SPOC has been fantastic. You don’t feel like you’re left alone with the technology. It’s been like no other support we’ve ever had with any other company.
