Total Safety, the leading global provider of integrated safety services and compliance solutions, announced today it has acquired Oilfield Safety, Inc. (“OSI”) based in Williston, North Dakota and Western Fire & Safety, Inc. (“Western”) based in Dickinson, North Dakota. With over twenty years of customer service each, the companies will add to Total Safety’s Williston Basin presence through additional air, gas, and fire services. OSI provides critical safety services to the upstream energy markets including air, gas, and fire services to complement their equipment rental fleet. Western complements the portfolio with a focus on fire services (fixed and portable systems) and personal protective equipment to both the up- and midstream energy markets and various fire departments across North Dakota.
“We are excited to partner with the energetic and talented team at OSI and Western,” said David E. Fanta, Chief Executive Officer of Total Safety. “The leadership teams have a commitment to safety and excellence that mirrors our own. We are looking forward to extending our additional capabilities to their current customers, some of which we’ve been proud to serve elsewhere but simply didn’t have the strong local presence to meet their needs until now. OSI’s office in Williston will provide an immediate footprint to expand our services further north from our geographic base while Western’s capabilities complement our current Dickinson office very well.”
Randy Jilek, President and CEO of Western and OSI, noted, “we are very eager to provide our clients with additional services now that we are part of the Total Safety family. We know this combination will be advantageous for our clients and our loyal employees.” Randy Jilek will continue to manage the business in Dickinson while Ben Weltikol will continue his leadership in Williston; both will dedicate themselves to their continued high standard of customer service.
