Quadco Inc. was founded as an oilfield service company in April of 1966 in Farmington, New Mexico . The Quadco name has its roots in the San Juan Basin and the Four Corners Area of the Southwestern United States.
As oil and gas development activity grew tremendously in the Rockies during the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s, Quadco became the master distributor for Martin Decker instruments that provided sales, service, and rental of weight indicators, drilling recorders, pump pressure gauges, and pit level equipment in the Rockies. During this time, Quadco was selling more Martin Decker drilling instrumentation in the Rockies than the rest of the Martin Decker distributors globally.
Hercules Deadline Anchor Company was purchased by Quadco in 1980 from Elmer Decker of Decker Engineering. The first Hercules deadline anchor was manufactured in Casper, Wyoming in March of 1981 and Hercules anchors continue to be manufactured there today. Our SG Sure Grip anchors were designed for use with Plastic Filled Valley Wire Rope and patented in the late 1980’s. In 2005 we designed our rotating drum anchor which is available in many different models. www.herculesdla.com
In 1988 Southwest Power Tools (SPT) was acquired by Quadco. SPT is a provider of industrial tools, services and supplies to Northwest New Mexico and the bordering states of Arizona, Utah and Colorado. SPT prides itself in providing exceptional service and value to all of its customers. www.swpowertools.com
Over the 50 plus years since the Company’s founding, Quadco and its dedicated workforce has grown to provide a wide variety of industrial equipment sales and service into the oil and gas, mining, power, chemical and other heavy industries. These operations are conducted across the Rockies and in Alaska.
In May of 2016, Quadco was acquired by SolstenXP Venture Funding, LLC. Today, the former three divisions of Quadco operate as the separate entities of Quadco LLC, Hercules Deadline Anchor Company LLC and Southwest Power Tools LLC.
