Volant Products Inc. is focused on developing good ideas into high value commercial products and services. We have specialized in efficient and rapid prototyping, high quality engineered designs, exacting quality assurance, and facilities that enable efficient commercial production. The company is engaged in manufacturing and world-wide sales of tubular consumable goods (MLT Rings, HydroFORM centralizers, etc.), and proprietary top-drive casing running tools. Through its services division, Volant provides well site casing running services throughout Western Canada, using the proprietary casing running tools and provides training services to tool customers world-wide.
Volant Products Inc. commenced operations in 2001 as a small machine shop manufacturing a single technology product. Volantís business objective was to become an efficient vehicle for rapid technology development and commercialization of products and services that target the oil and gas industry. Volant is privately held by a small group of shareholders, all of whom are involved in the day-to-day business of the company.
Over the past ten years, the company has grown significantly in staff size, sales volume, and in the diversity of its products and services. Building its reputation on innovation, service, responsiveness, and fair pricing, Volant has earned strong customer loyalty and appreciation by consistently delivering value. Much of this value derives from a proven track record for developing and commercializing engineered solutions, most of which are based on patented technologies. The company has developed a strong customer base for its products in Canada, and around the world, with major upstream operators and with casing running service providers. In response to growing demand, and to provide infrastructure for continued growth, Volantís operations were moved into a new purpose-built manufacturing facility in the spring of 2011.
