Patriot Water Treatment : Warren, Ohio
Processed water treatment and recycling. Patriot’s plant is the only one of its kind in Ohio. The company treats initial flowback water and rain run-off from oil and gas drilling sites (both of which are high in muds and metals but very low in salt or other dissolved solids), cleans the water through a scientifically proven, environmentally safe method and returns the fresh water to Ohio’s surface water system. Though thoroughly vetted and permitted by the state, government regulatory agencies sought to shut down Patriot’s operations despite lawful operations. ShaleComm works with Patriot to manage media relations. Our company also developed and executed a multi-media advertising campaign that was highly effective in positively raising Patriot’s public image in Columbus, the seat of Ohio’s political power structure.

Dearing Compressor and Pump Company: Youngstown, Ohio
Manufacturers of industrial pumps and compressor units for oil and gas distribution Dearing Compressor and Pump has been family managed since 1945. And while the company enjoyed periods of success during sporadic increases in Ohio’s oil and gas industry, it nearly went out of business during the lean times of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Today, Dearing is a reinvigorated company that has grown dramatically to serve the demands of Utica Shale and Marcellus Shale operators. ShaleComm employed its proprietary Brand MRI ™ market research process to identify Dearing’s marketing strengths and developed a new logo and new sales collaterals for the company based on our research findings. ShaleComm’s research also provided important information to assist Dearing in its efforts to recruit quality employee to continue the company’s current growth.
