OUR HISTORY: Four Generations of Experience to Serve You
Walt Loftis began working in the original East Texas Oil Fields near Kilgore,Texas in the 1930's. In those early days,drilling rig supplies where delivered by mule train and as Walt was fond of saying, the rigs were made of wood and the men were made of steel. In the 1950's, Walt was a 'Tool Pusher' over several oil rigs in the West Texas Permian Basin Oil Fields. As Tool Pusher, Walt was the drilling company representative responsible for getting the holes drilled safely, efficiently and on budget.
Walt's experience, talent and integrity became the foundation for The Loftis Company. In 1953, Walt's son, Walton O'Neil (Neil) Loftis, founded Mid-Tex Drilling Company in Midland, Texas with the purchase of his first portable drilling rig. After a few years of mostly water well work, Neil shifted the company's focus to the drilling and implementation of Cathodic Protection Services 'deep-well' anode ground beds. A well-educated man with a law degree from the University of Texas in Austin, Neil was appointed by the governor to the State of Texas Water Well Drillers Board where he was responsible for aiding the Texas Water Commission in the enforcement of drilling rules statewide.
In 1963, Mid-Tex Drilling Company was renamed The Loftis Company. Under Neil's leadership, The Loftis Company expanded to serve Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. In 1973, Neil's son, Mike Loftis joined The Loftis Company and quickly proved himself the equal to his grandfather Walt in managing field production safely, efficiently and under budget. In 1989, Mike's sister, Margaret Loftis joined The Loftis Company. Over the next few years, Neil turned the company over to Mike and Margaret. Mike has continued to drive the expansion of the company's field production capabilities while Margaret has managed overall business operations.
In 2006, Mike's son, Michael Loftis became the fourth generation to join The Loftis Company and today they share full responsibility for all Cathodic Protection Installation Services across 13 states while Margaret continues to run the overall business.
