Our Legacy

UECompression has been providing 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 and product distributor for power generation, biogas, renewable natural gas, hydrogen, oil & gas, industrial and process applications in the U.S.

Strategically located in the Rocky Mountain West, UEC has facilities in Denver, CO; Casper, WY; and Billings, MT and is able to ship equipment throughout the U.S.

As of November 2021, UEC is now part of the Xebec family. Xebec is a global provider of clean energy solutions for renewable and low carbon gases used in energy, mobility and industrial applications. Learn more about Xebec
