BORN CANADA RENAMED ONQUEST CANADA
Final Phase in Integrating with Process Engineering Firm OnQuest
Los Angeles and Calgary (February 1, 2013) - Hydrocarbon process engineering firm OnQuest Inc.'s operating subsidiary in Calgary, formerly known as Born Heaters Canada ULC, has been renamed OnQuest Canada ULC, announced OnQuest's president and CEO Randy Kessler today.
OnQuest Canada ULC henceforth will do business under the OnQuest name in North America and throughout the world.
Established in Calgary in 1988 by Roger Newnham, OnQuest Canada ULC, has historically specialized in direct-fired heater technology and burner management systems. The company was acquired by San Dimas, Calif.-based OnQuest, Inc., in 2005 and operated under the Born Canada name until today's announcement.
"Roger Newnham has created a leader in direct-fired heater applications and BMS, and in the last 25 years has built a worldwide brand," said Kessler. "OnQuest is committed to upholding that legacy. As our clients in the hydrocarbon processing industry look to improve the operating efficiency of existing units or add capacity by building new ones, OnQuest's design and engineering expertise allows them to do that."
Newnham, who remains president of the Calgary operation, adds: "We are extremely pleased to now bear the OnQuest name and to carry that banner to clients around the world."
Established in Los Angeles in 2002, OnQuest provides turnkey process design and engineering, procurement, and construction supervision for mid- to micro-sized liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, other hydrocarbon process plants, and renewable energy production facilities such as for biofuels and waste-to-energy production. OnQuest also provides applied combustion technology and direct-fired heaters for a range of applications, including for hydrocarbon reforming for hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol production. OnQuest is expert in furnace revamps and retrofits.
OnQuest manages projects on a lump-sum, fixed-price basis—from concept to commissioning. The company has delivered projects for most major energy-producing companies, and has a growing presence in the market for renewable, environmentally sustainable energy. The company has offices in San Dimas, Calif., Calgary, Alberta, and Houston, Tex., and has sales representatives worldwide.
OnQuest Canada ULC is incorporated under the corporate laws in the province of Alberta. Both OnQuest, Inc. and OnQuest Canada ULC are ISO 9001 certified. OnQuest is a subsidiary of Primoris Services Corporation (NASDAQ: PRIM), one of the nation's largest specialty civil construction companies.
