Exterran was formed in 2007, yet the company’s legacy of industry leadership goes back more than half a century. The merger of Universal Compression Holdings, Inc. and Hanover Compressor Company formed what is now the industry vanguard in capabilities and expertise. Having the most diverse combination of offerings and the largest global footprint allows us to serve clients like no other company. Our history is rich with accomplishments, and we feel we are just getting started.

Exterran has nearly 10,000 employees working around the globe, and our goal is to be best-in-class when it comes to quality, health, safety and environment. A culture of integrity and respect is deeply ingrained throughout our company. We are unwavering in our commitment to act responsibly with regard to our own people, our communities, the governments where we work, and the planet we all share.

Examples of our dedication abound at Exterran. We have full-time QHSE professionals globally who guide us in living up to our values. We have an Air Quality Team that helps clients with emissions compliance matters and continually works to advance air quality technologies. Exterran Environmental Solutions™ helps clients to ensure compliance with federal and state emission regulations through a broad range of services and equipment. We also work to improve the communities where we work – everything from supporting local schools and charities to making sure former worksites are completely and beautifully returned to nature.

Exterran is committed to providing safety and security to its employees and visitors while protecting the environment in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. As an industry leader in providing innovative products and world-class services, Exterran is also the frontrunner in safety through design and process integration. Our policies and procedures are standardized amongst our global locations to promote consistent results for our Customers and to safeguard people, property, and the environment.

Exterran believes that HSSE performance should be based upon leading indicators, such as Incident Free Days, as opposed to the traditional and inconclusive “Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)”. Because of this proactive approach, our safety and incident reporting culture is unmatched and our employees can realize their personal contribution and commitment to our Company and Customers. Exterran will endeavor to remain both innovative and vigilant to ensure our programs incorporate lessons learned and industry best practices.

At Exterran, working safe is not regarded as an obligation or duty; working safe is who we are.
