Leading Provider of Top-Quality Compression and Process Packages
Compass is a privately-owned company, established in 2001. The Company is led by an Executive Team consisting of five well-recognized industry experts, with deep experience in the natural gas compression and process industry.
Compass specializes in designing and fabricating top-quality, warm-weather and arctic-style, reciprocating, rotary screw and rotary vane compressor packages and process package systems for the energy industry, worldwide.
Over the last 20+ years, our executive team has successfully steered Compass through the highs and lows of the industry and has made many bold and strategic moves to ensure the continued success and growth of our company including:
- Acquired Exterran’s US compression assets: In 2020, we made an industry-changing move by acquiring Exterran Corporation’s US compression assets which significantly increased our US footprint and our ability to provide top-quality compression and process equipment to clients around the world.
- Rebranded to Compass: In 2018, we evolved the business from the singularly focused Compass Compression to Compass, a diverse company that offers five integrated and complementary business divisions. Our five business divisions enable us to design, fabricate, optimize, and support the life of our clients’ equipment.
Compression: We offer a range of standard, configurable and customizable, warm-weather and arctic-style, reciprocating, rotary screw and rotary vane compressor packages.
Process: Our packaged process equipment ranges from small, independent, skid-mounted modules to large, integrated, multi-skid processing systems.

A 60-Year Legacy of Compression Excellence
We’ve acquired a remarkable legacy with our acquisition of Exterran’s US compression assets. Many well-recognized and successful companies have helped form and build the Exterran legacy including South Coast Gas, Tidewater, Universal Compression, Weatherford Gas Compression Services, Hanover Compression, KCI, and more.
We’re proud of this 60-year legacy, and we are eager to design and fabricate compression equipment out of the legendary Brittmoore Road Facility with the exceptional employees who have had a hand in building this legacy.
We have a robust arsenal of industry-leading engineering and production drawings that have been developed, honed and refined over many decades of solving clients’ challenges, for every application.
We are embedding this expertise and intellectual property into our operations to enhance and build upon Compass’ 20+-year legacy of designing and fabricating top-quality compression equipment.
That’s more than 80 years of combined expertise and experience, assuring we provide clients with high-performing packages with consistent quality, predictable performance, simple operation and easy maintenance.
We are energized and committed to growing this legacy over the
next 60+ years.
