Jim Patterson started Hardy Fabrication & Design, LLC in 2011 in Bakersfield, CA. While working in the oil field as a fabricator, he saw a need in the Kern County oil and gas industry for quality service with fair pricing for bottom hole assembly equipment. Patterson is a third-generation oil field worker who understands first-hand the needs and issues clients have for safe, quality products.
Patterson’s knowledge and experience began in the oilfield at age 16. His team commits to family-style customer service, quality design and flawless manufacture. Whether it’s a simple order or a complex design challenge, he works diligently to address every clients’ concerns and needs.
I grew up learning the oil and gas industry from my father and grandfather, who were both oil field workers and passed down a knowledge, love, and respect for an industry that was ingrained in every fiber of their being. Hardy was my grandfather, also known as ‘Tex’ Patterson. He came to Kern County in the early 1900’s from Texas and worked on a rig until age 74. I wanted to name the company to honor him and his legacy. Thank you to our families and customers who make it possible to succeed in this business. As we move forward and continue to grow, we won’t forget were we started, and will always strive to provide a product that surpasses all expectations.”
