It all began with the vision Mr. Carl “Whitey” Brooks had many years ago. Whitey spent over 60 years working on and around pipelines as a welder and foreman. After all those years he came to the conclusion there needs to be a safer alternative to hot welding on steel sleeves. That’s when he invented and developed the Composi-Sleeve™ reinforcement system. He realized being able to attach steel sleeves using a military-grade adhesive was the solution.
Since the initial Composi-Sleeve™ system was invented, Western Specialties has continued to develop other reinforcement and repair solutions for the oil and gas market. These include Ultra-Wrap, Compos-Patch, and Smart Sleeve.
Western Specialties has opened the eyes of some major companies like LMC Industrial Contractors (LMC), Primoris Service Corporation (PSC), and Lloyd’s Register (LR). These companies have been working closely together with Western Specialties to provide customers a turn-key solution all under the same name. The magnitude of resources and services available to our customers is what makes Western Specialties unique.
