Established in 1959, Patterson Services, Inc. has grown from humble roots as a family-oriented business to a publicly-traded company that is recognized as trusted supplier to the oil and gas industry. Founded by C.R. Patterson, Jr., PSI was one of the original providers of rental pipe and rental equipment to the industry.

Today, Patterson Services, Inc. has evolved to become a subsidiary of RPC, Inc., a New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) company. PSI’s divisions include Patterson Rental Tools, and the Critical Well Response Team. With uncompromising expectations for quality, safety, integrity, and excellence, Patterson Services, Inc., is an industry leader in data-driven and technology-enhanced service to the oil and gas industry on a global scale.

Patterson Services, Inc. will continue to focus on our Safety Program and our ISO 9002 certification. Commensurate with our goals to grow our business, we would like to expand our inventory base and our services to focus on production activities as well as continuing to focus on drilling activities.  We believe that our Company’s mission is encompassed in our Quality Policy Statement:
