Norris provides unparalleled value in the rod lift market by focusing on providing the best in product performance, customer service and well optimization knowledge.
Norris is the world’s leader in sucker rod production. A short visit to our manufacturing facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will provide you convincing evidence of this fact. More sucker rods are manufactured by Norris in Tulsa than are produced by all our recognized competitors combined!
Our position as an industry leader is one we take very seriously. Norris is dedicated to producing the finest special bar quality sucker rods you can buy.
But the Norris commitment to excellence extends beyond quality control – to the most complete customer service and technical service programs in the industry. Our salesmen are experienced sucker rod specialists, and we’ve brought our products to the point of need with over 50 field stocking points.
The Legacy Continues...
Our commitment to excellence also extends into the future: Norris is dedicated to the research and development of new longer-lasting alloys and rod compositions. But our current philosophy has its roots in the past. W.C. Norris, who founded the firm in Tiona, Pennsylvania in 1882, laid the groundwork for our present success over 100 years ago. Mr. Norris knew then that success required hard work, a pledge of quality and service to his customers, and an untiring dedication to innovation. Over the last century, these precepts have never changed, and innovation has characterized the Norris legacy.
Our dedication to innovation is single-minded and persistent. Norris experts are aware of every technological advance in the oil industry, and continue to adapt these new technologies to improve Norris sucker rods and couplings. By specifying Norris, you'll be assured of selecting the finest sucker rods available today, and you'll be certain of continued product improvement each year in the future.
Norris is unequaled in providing customer service, both before and after the sale. We offer a free, computerized rod string design service that determines the combination of rod size, type, and pumping capacity that best suits your application. We provide free training courses for your employees regarding: proper care and handling of sucker rods; failure analysis identification with corrective action; and, proper rod string design. And in the case of string failure, Norris performs failure analysis on rods and couplings to help you avoid similar problems in the future.
Norris currently offers six types of sucker rods formulated from different alloys. These compositions cover just about any downhole condition you might encounter. In a corrosive well, sucker rods come under attack the moment they're run. Until your chemical inhibition program becomes effective, Norris sucker rods are protected during rod shipment and storage.
Norris also offers two types of sucker rod couplings. Either provides excellent mechanical and fatigue properties, but for additional wear and corrosion resistance, the Norris Sprayloy? coupling goes one step further. It has a coating of nickel-chromium, which is flame-sprayed and fused to the coupling surface. No coupling lasts forever, but Norris couplings are made to last longer — for thousands of additional pumping cycles.
Consider all the Norris product features, innovations, and services and we think you'll reach an obvious conclusion: sucker rods may be interchangeable, but they are by no means equal. So the next time you specify a rod string, choose the industry's best.
