ProFrac Services Is A New Venture Made Up Of Veteran Industry Leaders
ProFrac Services was formed in May 2016 with a veteran leadership team that had previously transformed a start-up into the world’s largest private pressure pumping company. Leveraging the lessons learned in that venture uniquely positioned ProFrac to deliver superior services earlier than a traditional start-up.
