Pumping up the Volume of Success!
From small town to international business, Duncan Equipment is pumping up success! The sole supplier for the Halliburton Centrifugal Pump and a leader in supplying industrial materials and equipment, Duncan Equipment Co. is a family-owned business that has been in operation for more than fifty years.
Duncan Equipment (DECO) was founded in Duncan, Oklahoma in 1948 and then made Oklahoma City its new headquarters in 1981. Since then, Duncan Equipment has expanded locations from Duncan and Oklahoma City to Tulsa and Ponca City, Oklahoma; Dallas, Wichita Falls and Sherman, Texas and Joplin, Missouri. Training coordinator, Stacy Pierce said, "Metro Tech is a significant part of our growth."
DECO first contacted Metro Technology Centers and Tulsa Tech about seven years ago to assist with training for their employees. Most of their 150 employees have received some type of training, mainly in computer applications, quality management, safety or teleconferencing. Metro Tech was able to customize and adapt software applications to the needs of each work site and train workers at their location. CEO David Ragland said, "Oklahoma Technology Centers are known as the premier training centers in the nation. We know this to be true, especially when we looked for training centers in Texas and Missouri. No system is comparable to Oklahoma's CareerTech system."
Metro Tech's Business and Industry coordinator Nancy Bucklin has worked very closely with DECO and commented, "They are a very upscale, progressive company using advanced, high-tech equipment. DECO has an extremely quality atmosphere with an outstanding group of people."
DECO enjoys doing business with a large variety of regional, national and international customers such as Halliburton Energy Services, General Motors, Bridgestone/Firestone, MerCruiser, Tinker Air Logistic Systems, American Airlines, Autocraft and Fred Jones Remanufacturing. Many of these companies were founded in Oklahoma and have subsequently expanded into global markets.
