Richard or NIP as he prefers to be called, has been involved in the Taber Oil patch for more than 35 years.  Starting out on the drilling rigs, NIP worked up to tool push status.  After 16 years, he wanted to change his lifestyle, so he got involved in working maintenance crews.  After being a crew foreman for another company for eight years, NIP broke out on his own and called his company NIP’s Oilfield Service.  Brad and NIP had worked on many projects over the years together, and when the management transfer from Louis to Brad & Ken was taking place, NIP was asked to join the team.  He did so, and has been supervising our crews for steel and fiberglass projects since joining our company.
