Glen Jewell, the inventor of The Saddle Bag Weight™, formalized his idea of an alternative to a concrete weight over many years of pipelining throughout Northern Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
His experience showed the need for an alternative to the existing weight system that was easier to install and that would do less damage to pipe coating during installation or removal of the anchoring device.
After several prototypes the existing design was settled upon as being the most advantageous and simplest to manufacture, fill with sand, deliver to site, and install for all parties concerned.
At this point Saddle Tech. Inc. was formed to manufacture and market this new, innovative, yet extremely simple and functional product.
The company, Saddle Tech. Inc. was incorporated in the Province of Alberta in August, 1999. The purpose of the company is the manufacturing and marketing of “The Saddle Bag Weight™” to the oil and gas industry. The Canadian Patent number is CA 2277523 and the United States Patent number is 6220788. We also have a registered trade name.
