It supplies, installs and maintains a range of products including electronic flow meters, hydrogen sulfide monitors, separators, dehydrators, and pneumatic safety systems. The Croft Services headquarters will remain in Kirvin.

“We were attracted to EMS Group because they share our philosophy that customers deserve leading edge technology and the highest level of service from our people in the field,” said Frank Croft, who will remain with the company in a consulting role. “The only change customers will notice is that Croft Services will have expanded capabilities to serve them as their needs grow and their pipeline operations become more complex.”

James Croft joined Croft Services in 1997 and initiated its entrance into the electronic flow measurement market.
