Wellsite Fishing & Rental Services was founded in 2013 by Kirby Arceneaux, our Board Chairman. The company is led by a seasoned team of oilfield service executives with proven track records of delivering value to customers and a commitment to health, safety and quality standards. In 2019 we focused our operations in the Appalachian Northeast and re-located our corporate office to New Castle, Pennsylvania as part of our commitment serving customers in Northeast gas basins.
Our mission to expand our footprint and product offerings within our core geographic market while responding quickly to customers and delivering the best solution, the first time. It is our goal to provide customers the highest quality services in the oil and gas industry.
