The Beginning of Henry Pump

It all started with a 17-year-old boy on a fishing trip with his dad.

Discussing the oil industry, pumpjacks and how oil and gas was produced, the teenager asked the ever-crucial question: why? Then he proceeded to share his idea of a better way of retrieving oil and gas from wellbores.

The boy was David Henry, son of long-time West Texas oilman Jim Henry, and his idea was revolutionary.

Through the ensuing years of research and development, Jim and David saw opportunities to eliminate many inefficiencies in their own oil and gas production operations through Henry R&D’s sister company, Henry Petroleum. They realized the oil and gas production industry hadn’t kept pace with technological advances and that with greater automation, many processes could be streamlined.

The close relationship between the two companies offered a unique advantage in product development in that products were designed and developed by oil producers for oil producers. Henry Petroleum’s many years of boots-on-the-ground experience in the industry gave invaluable insight into engineering state-of-the-art, cost-saving tools and products.

The Henry Pump is our legacy, but we haven’t stopped innovating since we can clearly see our ever-evolving future. At Henry Pump we are continuously researching, developing and testing new tools and products. Our pipeline of revolutionary products will bring far-reaching, game-changing innovations to the industry.
