about/exquip-plant.jpg A brief history of Exquip worldwide 

Exquip was founded in 1988 in Germany as "Exquip Reu-GmbH" with the intention of manufacturing a totally recyclable thread protector. The idea was to manufacture a protector without using steel, which was predominantly used by all other manufacturers for product stability, but instead use a patented system for stability in larger sizes. Nine years later, the company built its own plant in Hamm, Germany. It was renamed in 2013 to “Exquip Germany GmbH” in conjuction with new management of the company.

In 1997, Exquip International Ltd was founded in Aberdeen, Scotland, with the intention to deliver more service, stock, and increase distribution capabilities to our customers in the North Sea Oil & Gas market. Exquip International Ltd. moved to a larger warehouse in Montrose, Scotland in 2002.

In 2000, Exquip USA LLC was founded in Houston, Texas and production began in 2004. The company went through an enormous growth period and in 2011 opened a second production facility in Hockley, Texas.

All Exquip facilities are growing alongside the growing Oil & Gas market; Exquip accompanies their customers through new projects, custom made protection solutions, and by supplying high quality full plastic thread protectors from 2 3/8” up to 52” in diameter.

Our customers benefit from our depth of knowledge and many years of experience. We offer practical advice on how our products can benefit and in most cases we are able to provide solutions that save money and improve the level of thread protection.

While Exquip International Ltd and Exquip Germany GmbH are already ISO 9001 certified, Exquip USA LLC is in the process of obtaining this certification.
