About Us


Franklin Welding Service, Inc. was established September 23, 1974 by William E. "Hump" Franklin and has grown from its small beginnings in 1974 to today with 100 employees offering complete oilfield services.  Hump passed away in 2014, but the company still lives on in his memory.


The company is now equally owned and operated by Steve Peterek, Robert Salazar and Ruben Sandoval, Jr.  

Jennifer Kress is the Chief Financial Officer/Accountant and Cheryl Kirk is the Office Manager.


We are proud to have a dedicated safety department led by Tom Lomas and Rolando Sandoval.  Employees have monthly safety meetings and first aid training.  All employees must go through Operator Qualifications testing as well as drug and alcohol testing.  In 2014, Franklin Welding Service became a PEC SafeLand Authorized Provider. 


in 2011, Franklin Welding Service expanded into the rental business and created SouthPoint Rentals, LLC.  This rental company can service all of your portable toilet needs as well as hand-washing stations, light towers, air compressors and cooling trailers.  Please visit our website!
