Their first customer in 1971, Lone Star Gas (now Atmos Energy), headquartered in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, remains a customer to this day. In 1993, Driver Pipeline expanded significantly via the acquisition of another pipeline contractor located in Pearland, TX (just south of Houston), which significantly enhanced the Company’s capabilities in the Gulf Coast Region.
In 1998, the Company hired several former Lone Star Gas employees and established a state-of-the-art fabrication facility at its Dallas headquarters to better support its customers’ needs. In 2007, Driver moved to a modern, 30 acres facility located in Irving, Texas. The state of the art facilities greatly enhanced the company’s ability to support its teams out in the field. The facility has also provided additional space for a rapidly growing fleet of trucks and equipment, as well as a greatly expanded fabrication shop, new 18 bay maintenance shop, training center and corporate offices.
Due to the increasing demands of energy production and consumption, along with the evolution of the hydraulic fracturing industry, pipeline construction is experiencing tremendous growth. To better serve the high demand areas, in 2011 Driver opened a new branch office in Whitsett, TX in the Eagle Ford Shale area, and in 2013 opened an office in Abilene, TX. to serve the Permian Basin area.
What began as a small family business serving a single customer has grown into a fully integrated oil and gas pipeline construction company known for its vast equipment fleet, talented pipeliners, “can-do” spirit and commitment to safety.
