Bulldog Machine and Production Services began its operation in October of 2008 in a small facility on Hall Avenue in Clifton, Colorado. The focus of the operation was Well Head Servicing along with a small machine shop that serviced the needs of oil field companies. Keith Allen, Steve Heifner and Tim Allen were the founding partners and the primary workforce with only a few additional employees. The attitude at Bulldog was; If you have problem with a product, bring it to us and we will get it designed and built to meet your requirements. The company began to find new clients including Frank Henry Equipment, Encana, Cal Frac and Halliburton. The attitude at the shop was in turn developing a constant work load.
Based on a growth of the volume of work, Bulldog shifted gears in the fall of 2010 and relocated to a new address on Foresight Circle in Grand Junction. Client’s products were diversifying, new oil field related technology was emerging. These demands allowed the company to expand its range of work with testing and repair of valves and flow-back iron, a new welding and fabrication facility and purchase of additional CNC machinery to better serve the demands in the machine shop. Bulldog stepped into the production of proprietary equipment with a small fleet of solar powered flare trailers and a flush jointed tubing connection.
The partnership expanded in the spring of 2011 when John Moir and Cecil Reese brought along new ideas and management styles. Bulldog found new opportunities in North Dakota, New Mexico and Wyoming. Investments in research and development continued to expand, new machines were purchased and a core group of employees grew Bulldog into one of the fastest growing small companies in the area. In fact, Bulldog received Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce Business Expansion Award in both 2012 and 2013.
Today Bulldog is doing business in a 20,000 square foot facility filled with CNC mills and lathes, a pressure testing facility and a very complete fabrication shop. We have facilities in North Dakota that serve our clients with their Bakken operations. We are expanding our operations into mining, wind generation, composite design and manufacturing and formalizing relationships with other manufacturers in Colorado and Utah. With the growth has come an emphasis on Quality, Safety and the Environment. We value the commitment of our work force and recognize that they will continue to drive the growth at Bulldog Machine and Production for years to come.
