In 1983, Cliff Smith founded Smith Pipe of Abilene, a used pipe distributor operating in Central Texas. Taking advantages of opportunities for growth, Smith weathered the ups-and-downs of the 1980’s energy industry by expanding the company’s service offerings, first by procuring a plugging rig, and later by refurbishing pump jacks and tanks. Eventually, Smith’s company expanded beyond the refurbishing of oilfield equipment and began manufacturing equipment to customer specifications. As the company’s capabilities and clientele grew, Smith Pipe of Abilene rebranded itself as Petrosmith to better reflect its ability to offer a variety of services to a larger geographic region. Today Petrosmith leads by combining years of historical expertise with innovative product design and manufacturing to serve clients of all scopes and sizes.
