Timeline

Company History

1977

Pioneering Project

Our entrepreneurial young CEO, Aziz Jamaluddin, founds Epcon Industrial Systems with a custom air pollution control and heat recovery system for Sharney Container (Mauser), one of the largest 55 Gallon Drum Manufacturers in Houston. The leading edge design earned him a patent and from there several 55 Gallon Drum projects followed. Learn more about 1977 and our founding story.
1978

Oilfield Drill Pipe

Awarded its first pipe coating application for a major supplier of Drill Pipe. The engineering of the unique system earned Mr. Jamaluddin a patent on for drill and line pipe coating and another patent for pipe burn out ovens while saving on operating cost and cutting production time down from 24 to 4 hours. With the Oil Boom in full swing Epcon became an industry leader in the manufacturing of oilfield equipment.
