Our History & Four Core Values

In 2001, Wescom started as a residential contractor in Rapid City, South Dakota. When the 2008 housing crash occurred, we ventured into the oil and gas market in the Bakken, an oil-rich region of North Dakota. By 2012, it was clear that industrial work – especially with oil and gas – required its own company. In 2013 ownership changed hands, and the Wescom we now know was borne out of the old residential company that stayed with the prior owners in Rapid City.

By 2013, we had defined our vision of what Energizing America means through four core values. What we found is that we can operate safely and reliably through the following core values, Serving with Integrity, Building Customers for Life, Empowering People, and Creating Opportunities. Those values keep production a key focus for our clients while holding safety to a high standard.

While operating out of Watford City and Williston, North Dakota, we have perfected our systems and how we do business. In 2017, we expanded into the Permian oil field in Carlsbad, New Mexico, where we provide all of our service offerings! Headquartered in the industrial region of Duluth, MN, we continue to expand and serve our clients in and around the Twin Ports region. Our entire team is committed to going wherever we need to be able to continue Energizing America.

Wescom is able to continue Energizing America by providing skilled and experienced electricians, automation technicians, mechanical (roustabout) labor, and environmental personnel to numerous industries. We have the capabilities to provide service to oil and gas, mining, utility, municipal, and other major industries. Through our service departments of Electrical, Industrial Controls, Mechanical, and Environmental, we can ensure that our clients’ production never stops.

Build Customers for Life

The customer is at the forefront of all that we do so that they become as committed to us as we are to them. We strive to help the customer succeed.

Create Opportunities

We never stop learning or teaching so that everyone has opportunity to further their knowledge. Through programs and training we move forward together.

Serve with Integrity

We serve with accountability and responsibility at all times and with an open and honest approach. We do the right thing when no one is watching. We do what we say.

Empowering People

We are empowered to make decisions that produce the greatest benefit. We trust that in all situations, we took the right approach at that time.
