Our Legacy

UECompression has provided high-specification, custom equipment, and solutions since the 1980s. While our name has changed a few times along the way—PAMCO, Colorado Compressor, Gas Packagers, Inc., and Iron Horse Compressor—our unwavering commitment to our customers and delivery of the highest-quality products and services remains the same. Today, UECompression (“UEC”) is the foremost engineered-to-order equipment packager for power generation, biogas, renewable natural gas, hydrogen, oil & gas, and industrial and process applications in the U.S.

Strategically located in the Rocky Mountain West, our Oil & Gas customers stretch throughout the continental US and our Process and Power customers have a global footprint. 

As of April 2023, UEC is a member of the EnergyLink International group. EnergyLink International is a leading supplier of specialized and balanced solutions for air emissions and noise management and acoustic consulting. Learn more about EnergyLink International.

We treat every project and customer as our most important. Big or small, complex or simple, we value each opportunity and always strive to raise the bar higher.
