Hunter Steel Pipe and Supply is proud to announce that, effective immediately, our PVF supply company has changed its name to HSPS. In addition, we’ve expanded our reach to better serve our friends in oil and gas.

The update follows our recent acquisition of partner company Pipeline Diagnostics Services, a move which allows for our expansion beyond traditional pipe, valve and fittings (PVF) supply offerings. Now, in addition to providing quality PVF supplies on clients’ schedules, we also offer pipeline integrity and in-line inspection (ILI) services.

The move was a natural fit for HSPS, which maintains long relationships with many clients in oil and gas, our company’s President, Micah Cooley, said.

“Our team has always been dedicated to providing the things our clients need to not only get the job done, but to do it right,” he explained. “Adding inspection technology to the mix to increase their knowledge and improve safety just made sense.”

Our company’s industry-leading pipeline inspection technology, Ursa, combines temperature, sound, pressure and pipe width measurement to provide all-encompassing insight into pipes’ health. Ursa can navigate through bends, turns and tight spaces, provide mid-inspection image capture and transmit findings in near real-time.

“By pinpointing issues such as cracks or corrosion, Ursa helps companies fix pipeline issues before they become costly — or even dangerous — problems,” Micah added.

Ursa also aids in pipeline mapping.

Sam Lavergne, a partner with HSPS, noted that existing clients should experience little to no change in terms of their PFV delivery service.

“Besides needing to update address books with our new name, things should be business as usual for folks on the parts and supplies side of things,” he explained. “Our plan is to continue providing the quality service they’ve come to expect from our company and its people.”
