Basic Energy Services, a provider of maintenance and supervision at oil wells, is moving its headquarters from Midland, Texas, to Fort Worth. With the relocation, the company is hoping to provide more room for expansion and make use of some of Fort Worth's distinct advantages.
"Fort Worth provides a broader pool of experienced potential employees in the areas of human resources, accounting, finance and information technology that are essential to the continued growth of a publicly traded company," said Basic's President, Ken Huseman.
Even though the company hopes the new headquarters will provide more room for growth, it has grown quickly over the last two decades. It now employs more than 5,700 workers throughout Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas and Kansas.
In an effort to facilitate the process, Basic has been working to organize the move.
"A transition plan has been developed to allow for an orderly move of the corporate functions to Fort Worth, which we expect to be completed by end of this year," Huseman stated.
Despite the transition plan and the fact the company isn't moving out of state, the relocation will no doubt be complicated. With expensive equipment, time-sensitive materials and many employees' belongings, the services of a professional moving and relocation company could likely help keep the process under control.
