The History

LUFKIN’s proud legacy extends back to the early 20th century when the LUFKIN Foundry manufactured railroad and sawmill equipment. The company expanded soon after by pioneering oilfield pumping units in the 1920s. Today, LUFKIN is a world leader in its field, providing precision-engineered oilfield equipment, products, and services to customers around the world.
