Purchased in March 2014, by Steve Walter, Fleet Service solidified its future with a continuing passion for Quality, Culture, Reputation, and unmatched Customer Service in all markets served.

After reaching the position of Master Field Technician, Steve became responsible for recruiting and training junior technicians, as well as the daily management and scheduling of several direct reports. Additionally, he arranged customer-training events to instruct participants on Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repair.
In 2010, Steve transferred to UE Manufacturing (UEM) where he was the General Manager of the S.E. 29th and Gilson facilities before becoming the Parts and Service Manager. In this role he built a ground-up Field Service organization managing 3 technicians and generating $6.8 million in revenue in the first year. He has led teams to investigate and outline plans to open new service facilities across the U.S.
Steve has traveled to over 13 countries to both commission and repair oilfield equipment. Additionally, he has over 600 hours of certified class studies on Diesel Engine Troubleshooting & Repair, Transmission Troubleshooting and Repair, Electrical Systems, Quality Control, Lean Manufacturing, and Employee Safety.
