A History of Eaton Sales & Service
Eaton Metal Products Company was very active in the petroleum equipment business in the 1950s, but financial challenges in the steel manufacturing business in the 1960s caused the company to focus on tanks and special, steel-fabricated products.
In the early 1980s, a lag in the steel manufacturing business prompted the company to once again look to the petroleum equipment industry as a method of expanding the business. Through a series of acquisitions, startups and internal growth, by the mid-to-late 1990s, Eaton Sales and Service (the name trademarked and later the corporate name for the petroleum equipment sales, service and installation company) grew to become one of the largest petroleum equipment sales, service and installation companies in the industry. Eaton Sales and Service continues to be a leader in the Rocky Mountain region.
The company made its entry into the petroleum equipment industry in the 1980s. We started as a construction company providing complete turnkey projects to their customers. This included providing equipment, installation and service to all products that were sold. In the mid 1990s, the emphasis began to change more toward service. There were numerous products from a variety of manufacturers in a fueling facility that needed to interface (talk to each other). Complete knowledge and responsibility to maintain the customer's facility and keep it operational is vital to the customers. Eaton Sales and Service is one of the industry leaders in servicing state-of-the-art petroleum equipment.
With eight Rocky Mountain locations to serve the marketplace, Eaton Sales and Service provides service for many major oil companies, big-box retailers, grocery store chains and other independent retail/commercial fueling facilities.
