 Dearing Compressor History

With our roots in the Mahoning Valley since 1945, Dearing Compressor continues to expand due to the energy rush in the Marcellus and Utica Shale regions. Over the last two years we hired many trained professionals and 250 people anchor this local operation. We are actively seeking additional quality people to join our team and help us continue to expand. Throughout the 117,000 square ft. manufacturing complex Dearing builds gas compression packages, industrial air compressor packages, pumps, and engine starting air packages. The markets served are gas gathering, transmission, storage and gas processing including landfill and shale gas; and an industrial air division. Quality and safety are paramount to doing business with high profile production, transmission and midstream natural gas companies and manufacturers. The key to serving our clients is our quality in-house engineering department, designing in AutoCAD 3D; complemented with an experienced and highly skilled established workforce. As a mid-sized, family owned operation, Dearing has the capability to deal with all people on an individual basis and the past success and future growth of the company can be attributed to the family philosophy and mission statement that "Service is the key to the sale."
