TULSA, Okla. (
August 30, 2016) – D&L Oil Tools is proud to announce its Quality Management System has been granted API Q1 certification from the American Petroleum Institute (API). Additionally, D&L has been awarded an 11D1 Monogram License for Packers and Bridge Plugs. This certifies that D&L lives up to the highest standards in quality management and manufacturing.

Only two independent manufacturers in the U.S. have earned this distinction for both Packers and Bridge Plugs.

The API certification process began more than two years ago when D&L Oil Tools submitted applications for the two certifications. The process, which incorporates all employees and involves several on-site audits, verifies that the D&L facility and quality management system met the program requirements. As part of the certification process, licensees are required to maintain the capabilities, including the resources, processes and technology, to manufacture products that fall within the scope of licensing.

“I am so honored to be part of an elite group of companies with this certification and proud of our team for the effort and dedication it has displayed through this process,” said D&L Oil Tools CEO, Lee Eslicker.

API is the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. API has led the development of petroleum and petrochemical equipment and operating standards for more than 85 years; many of which have been incorporated into state and federal regulations.

“We have been proud of the quality of our products for more than 25 years,” said D&L Oil Tools COO, Dan Eslicker. “This certification validates our promise that we provide the highest standard of product and service to our customers.”

About D&L Oil Tools: D&L Oil Tools is founded on a philosophy of providing high-quality, affordable equipment quickly, and always being conscious of customer needs. Reliable equipment, customer satisfaction, and employee well-being are the cornerstones of the company.
