About Us

Our History & Four Core Values

In 2001, Wescom started as a residential contractor in Rapid City, South Dakota. When the housing market crashed in 2008, we decided to explore the oil and gas industry in North Dakota’s oil-rich Bakken region. 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 a clear vision of what “Energizing America” meant to Wescom. We came up with four core values that guide how we operate: Serving with Integrity, Building Customers for Life, Empowering People, and Creating Opportunities. These values help us focus on producing energy for our clients while keeping safety as a top priority. While operating out of Watford City and Williston, North Dakota, we have perfected our systems and how we do business.

In 2017, we expanded to the Permian oil field in Carlsbad, New Mexico, where we offer all our services! Our main office is in Duluth, MN, an industrial region, and from there, we continue to grow and serve clients in and around the Twin Ports area, including our latest prefab shop in Ashland, WI.

In June 2023, Wescom became employee-owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) program. This means that our employees now own the company. It’s an exciting step for us because it shows our dedication to our team and our shared responsibility for the company’s success and making sure our clients are happy.

At Wescom, our mission is clear – to Energize America safely and reliably.

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.

Building 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.

Creating Opportunities

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

Serving 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.
