Estevan Meter, Apollo Electric and Virden Meter Services come together on a merger

PRIMEC Controls Canada will meet a variety of needs for the oil and gas sector.
PRIMEC Controls Canada will be serving the oil and gas sector in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

ESTEVAN - Three familiar names in the Saskatchewan and Manitoba oil and gas industry are combining to become PRIMEC Controls Canada.

The ownership group of Estevan Meter, Virden Meter and Apollo Electric & Controls have decided to amalgamate the three businesses to provide more efficiencies for clients, while also transitioning to a brand that better represents the services offered by the companies.

The new name also aligns with their U.S. affiliate PRIMEC Controls LLC, based in Williston, N.D.

Estevan Meter, Virden Meter and Apollo Electric have built a reputation of providing top-tier technical sales and services through highly-trained staff and strategic partnerships with world-leading product suppliers.

PRIMEC Controls Canada will continue to be a leader in the business of programming, relief valves and repairs, instrumentation, measurement, electrical and combustion controls.

“Our new name better reflects who we are today, along with our intentions to grow locally as well as across Western Canada and the USA,” said president and CEO Doug Martens. “While we are rebranding with a new name, customers can expect the same great people, same great service, same management and same ownership that we’ve been known for over the past 55 years.”

“This allows us to continue offering more competitive solutions and improved efficiency for our clients,” he added later.

The transition to PRIMEC Controls Canada will take effect on Jan. 1, 2023.
