1. What is your specialty at D&L?

I specialize in new product development and custom design solutions. The designs or solutions can be as simple as a product modification or a full 100% new design. D&L’s new product development process allows us to fully understand the customer’s needs to provide the best possible solution to a well completion or service.

2. What makes D&L’s products superior?

The ability of D&L to explore new product development with a customer based focus allows us to work one on one with the customer to ensure the tools are what customer needs, expects, and within a timely manner. We encourage customers to be involved in the process from day 1 and to provide feedback throughout the new process development. Our ability to focus on the customer’s needs and deadlines make D&L’s new product development a vital aspect of evolving well services and completions.

3. Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I enjoy just about everything on the water from lakes to the ocean.
