HII Technologies’ story is one of vision, expansion and determination.
Previous to HII Technologies’ operations, the Company operated an oilfield machining and manufacturing company known as Shumate Machine Works and a proprietary industrial valve product line company known as the Hemiwedge Cartridge valve. In 2008, we sold the Shumate Machine Works company and in May 2011, we sold the Hemiwedge valve product line, its assets including trademark and as such were required to rename the company.
Therefore, in August, 2011 we changed the name of Hemiwedge Industries, Inc. to “HII Technologies, Inc.” in connection with selling the name and assets of our oilfield valve technology we had previously developed and commercialized.
Since the sale of its oilfield valve product line in May 2011 to a private company, our firm has developed a focus in Water, Power and Safety market segments of oilfield services. We believe these three market areas are highly needed to support today’s oilfield operators with their horizontal drilling and related hydraulic fracturing.
Today, HII Technologies is a Houston, Texas based oilfield services company with operations in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and West Virginia focused on commercializing technologies in water management, safety services and portable power used by Exploration and Production (“E & P”) companies in the United States.
In September 2012, we purchased Apache Energy Services, LLC dba AES Water Solutions. AES Water Solutions manages the logistical and transportation associated with water used typically during hydraulic fracturing and completion of horizontally drilled oil and gas wells.
In December 2012, we started the company’s oilfield power subsidiary which does business as South Texas Power (STP). Today, STP operates a fleet of mobile generators, light towers and related oilfield rental equipment for in-field power where remote locations provide little or no existing electrical infrastructure.
In January 2013, we started AES Safety Services which provides safety consulting services to oil and gas operating companies in Texas, Ohio and West Virginia. AES Safety Services quickly expanded into in-classroom training for SafeLand, H2SS and other needed certification programs. We also developed proprietary onsite safety programs for large domestic operators.
In November 2013, we purchased Aqua Handling of Texas, LLC dba AquaTex, which is a frac water transfer company that offers lay flat true no-leak hose and aluminum pipe for the high volume transfer of salt and fresh water to frac jobs.
