Welcome to Wichtex Machinery Corp.

Since 1930 Wichtex designers and builders have been watching their rigs work the oilfields. This has taught them how to build a rig to do just the job it is intended to do, the quickest and easiest, with the least amount of repair and upkeep.

Wichtex Rigs offer extremely fast rig-up and tear-down due to hydraulic and automatic operations. Arrangements of controls, weight, horsepower, and working capacities for each rig are customized to the buyer's wants and needs. This is what makes a Wichtex Rig something of which both the builder and the owner are proud.

  • All Wichtex Well Service Units are self-contained and can be changed from one type of mounting to any other without altering the machine.
