Our founding group is made up of 10 people who have worked together for the last 15 years. They have over 200 years of combined PCP and senior management experience, and together they helped grow KUDU Industries to a $200+ million company.
The founding members helped start artificial lift markets in Canada, the
United States, Kuwait, Australia, Colombia, and Romania. They're also listed as inventors on several patents in the PCP market.
The market is in chaos because of mergers and acquisitions. People are moving between different companies. There's a serious lack of service oriented PCP companies, and these companies don't have the market experience or expertise needed to explore and expand artificial lift.
It's easy for a lot of companies to say, but our first priority really is our people. We have the right service team with the right mindset, and we have a wellhead-back design and engineering team in place to design new products and services for the oilfield. Unlike other PCP groups, we also offer a joint venture partnership that makes the partner part of the manufacturing process.
The symbolism behind the MANTL logo:
The 3 green bars are an abstract M, for MANTL
The spaces between these bars represent wells drilled into the earth’s surface
The curvature of the M is similar to an Inflow Performance Relationship used in reservoir engineering and similar to a pump hydraulic performance test
We chose brown as a tribute to getting oil out of the ground
We chose green to show our commitment to the environment
