Company Profile

Quick Silver Wireline (QSW) is a privately owned Alberta company, incorporated and operating since May 2002. QSW provides subsurface data acquisition, operation of downhole flow control devices, fishing, pressure control systems and mechanical services associated with slickline wireline operations to the oil and gas industry in Western Canada. QSW also provides, installs and maintains surface and down hole gas and oil well optimization systems working with its affiliated company, QSO Inc.

While smaller in size than many of our competitors, we believe that we are large enough to provide good coverage and support, while at the same time small enough to provide personal, cost effective service to our customers. Our shareholders are involved in day to day management and in making sure our customers are satisfied. If there is a problem or concern, our customers are talking to people that care and can make a difference. We also believe that in order to keep good customers, we need to be concerned with their bottom line and not just our own. We feel that this is an important fundamental goal of our company.

We have also always believed that the key to maintaining quality service starts with our employees. We strive to provide more than just a paycheck to our employees and believe that this has enabled us to recruit and retain great personnel that care about the quality of their work, whether at the well site or supporting our field operations. We are also very committed to ensuring that the health and safety of our fellow employees, our customers, our co-workers and the general public is our upmost priority.

Finally, QSW is known as a superior provider of slickline services; we haven’t taken this recognition lightly but are continually striving to become a better company. Our long term goal is not to be the largest slickline company in Western Canada but to be the best.

 

Management Team

QSW has continued to grow and maintain a consistent and high level of service while adding key operational employees over the last ten plus years.  This has been accomplished through the teamwork of the three owners and several key employees.  Steven Brewster and Dean Mearns are jointly responsible in varying degrees for day to day management, operations, sales and corporate direction. Steven Morrical assists Steven and Dean with sales and marketing, financial planning, growth strategies and corporate systems.

Upon the startup of QSW, we recognized the importance of an experienced and diversified management team. Throughout the years we have assembled a small management team with over 140 years combined experience in the wireline and petroleum industry.  Below are some of the individuals that are part of that team:

Steven Brewster, President

Dean Mearns, Vice President Operations

Mike Piesse, Operations Manager & Red Deer Station Manager
