Vertex Resource Group Ltd. Acquires Hurricane Industries Ltd.

Vertex Resource Group Ltd. (Vertex) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Hurricane Industries Ltd., an oilfield service company specializing in vacuum, pressure and stable foam operations. Since acquiring the company in 2004, Tom and Blake Fisher, General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of Hurricane Industries, respectively, have grown the company to become the leading provider of foam services.

“The Hurricane Industries team has exceptional expertise and knowledge in utilizing stable foam for various cleanout, drilling and well stimulation applications in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Having the Hurricane team now integrated into Vertex will strengthen our Alberta and Saskatchewan operations and enable us to offer additional hydro-vac, foam and downhole support to our clients’ operations,” Terry Stephenson, President of Vertex said.
