Established in 1978 in Vernal, Utah, Graco Oilfield Services (Graco) was founded on the principal that “the working man can do better.” Built on a core supply specialism of fishing tools used in the retrieval of well equipment, Graco has been owned and operated by the Rambo family for over 40 years. As Graco’s President, Jon Rambo, explains: “In the late 90s, Graco began its expansion throughout the Rocky Mountains by way of multiple strategic acquisitions. As our inventory, alongside our strength of reputation and experience, grew, it was time to expand south. By the mid-2000s, Graco had locations from Montana to Texas and as far east as Oklahoma and Arkansas.”
