About Us

Founder's Letter

I founded WadeCo Specialties in 2005 on the simple premise that quality products delivered by experienced technicians under a chemical program supported by on-going testing and reporting would deliver a better bottom line for the customer.

WadeCo’s staying power with the customers who use our services is driven by the results we enable them to achieve. By structuring your program on testing to determine needs and being committed to continuing to evaluate and report results, WadeCo is the most effective chemical partner you can have in the effort to maximize the investment in your assets for the long haul.

Sometimes, this even means adjusting the program to treat with less chemicals! A lot of people would argue that it is not good for business to reduce the quantity of chemicals delivered to the customer, but if you are in the business of improving customer results, and not just selling product, then you have to pay attention to what the well or pipeline is telling you.

Around that founding premise, we have built a team of dedicated, well trained and most importantly, customer driven people. From top to bottom our organization has the singular focus of ensuring that your needs are met consistently.

Give our team an opportunity to tell you more about how we do it differently. You will not be disappointed!

President's Letter

When I joined WadeCo Specialties in 2007, I started out treating wells and managing inventory. That “hands on” experience has guided me ever since.

WadeCo’s strength from the beginning has been its ability to deliver effective chemical solutions tailored to the specific needs of the asset being treated. Whether it is a new well being drilled, a well in the completion phase, a producing well, a disposal well or a pipeline, delivering on this promise requires organization, coordination and most of all communication. As WadeCo has grown over the years, it has been my focus to ensure that we have the equipment, the products, and the people and just as important, the structure to coordinate all three of these elements to ensure that WadeCo meets the commitment to the customer.

To make it all happen we have:

  • designed and built custom equipment to deliver product efficiently and economically
  • improved our inventory management processes to ensure adequate stock levels at all times
  • strategically located storage facilities to be near our key customers
  • developed the organization to coordinate between all the elements of a top chemical program, from testing, to delivery to reporting results
  • committed ourselves to maintaining the high level of service that has been our trademark through every new area and every new account

Delivering on the promise of an effective chemical solution for your specific application with integrity and passion - that goal is what has driven WadeCo from the beginning and it is the goal that will continue to drive us forward in the future.

Let us show you how our commitment can benefit you.
