TRANSCRIPT

  • Taking a risk and opening a business takes courage. Open-ing an oilfi eld-based business in 1980 when the industry was in the throes of the National Energy Program took the type of courage found in Don and Shirley Cox. Th e couple not only started CRC Wellhead, they ran it very successfully for 34 years. Sadly, Don passed away in 2009 and aft er running the company on her own for a few years, Shirley made the decision to sell. Daughter Nina remains at CRC Wellhead as the offi ce manager and Drew Morris, who joined as president in January of this year, is committed to running the company in a way that would have made the original owners proud.

    Th ey felt there was a niche in the industry for what they could provide a machine shop, says Morris of the Coxs decision to open CRC. Dons history was in valves and he was with a large supplier to the industry. He saw the need for a quality machine shop to provide secondary machining to the industry. Th e major suppliers of wellhead equipment, at that time, did not have the resources to sustain the volume of business they were doing. Th ey needed contract machine shops, and thats how it started. Don grew the company based on the needs of his customers.

    Since that time, CRC Wellhead has been an industry-leading supplier of common A.P.I. wellhead parts, as well as other com-ponents for oil and gas companies across North America.

    Morris journey with the company has been an encouraging one so far. Joining just before the downturn has made for some interesting, and inspiring days. A lot of companies are laying

    people off . A lot are closing their doors, says Morris. Its hit our industry hard. I told these guys when I fi rst started that I would try to keep things status quo. I saw some defi ciencies in what we had been doing and we were going to improve on that and improve our sales. Th is was in January when things were going well. In February we got hit hard by the downturn. By mid-March we decided to cut costs.

    Morris way of cutting costs was not to compromise on qual-ity or lay people off . He found a solution that benefi ted the com-pany, clients and staff .

    In early March, I brought up with the employees that we were going to apply to Service Canada for a Work-Sharing (WS) agreement. On Apr 12 it was initiated. This way all the employees can keep their jobs during the downturn and hopefully, by the end of the six-month period of the pro-gram, things will be back to normal.

  • WS is a government initiative where employees split the amount of time they spend at work. For CRC, this means one shift works Monday and Tuesday, everyone works on Wednes-day and the remaining crew works Th ursday and Friday. Th e company pays for 60 per cent of the salaries, and the govern-ment pays 40 per cent.

    Its good for the government, otherwise they would be pay-ing laid off workers 100 per cent Employment Insurance. Its not my fi rst rodeo, Morris continues with a confi dent smile. In this industry, there seems to be a six-year cycle where we go into a recession or a correction mode. CRC has the ability to weather this storm and come back stronger than ever.

    Downturn or not, customer confi dence remains high among CRCs clientele and the 100 per cent Canadian-made products they supply. We have an American Petroleum Institute (A.P.I.) licence that allows us to monogram the products we are selling in accordance with A.P.I. standards, Morris says proudly. It allows our customers to incorporate the products we are sup-plying into their complete A.P.I. package.

    With an eye for a stronger future for the company, Morris is currently looking at potential products CRC can design, manu-facture and sell as their own brand. Th is would not be diffi cult to integrate into the current workfl ow as the company purchas-es and stocks the raw materials their customers need. CRC ma-chines, tests, inspects and prepares products for shipping.

    Th is is something I told the guys the moment I walked through the door, says Morris. I want good quality and
