Sanjel Corporation

As the largest, privately owned oilfield services company in Canada, with international operations stretching around the globe, Sanjel Corporation embraces the use of design technology to promptly deliver better performing, more reliable products to gas- and petroleum-producing customers.

The Challenge

As the largest, privately owned oilfield services company in Canada, with international operations stretching around the globe, Sanjel Corporation embraces the use of design technology to promptly deliver better performing, more reliable products to gas- and petroleum-producing customers. Company engineers used 2D design tools until 2004, when they investigated 3D solutions in response to the rapidly accelerating pace of the oil and gas industry.

The Solution

Sanjel standardized on the SolidWorks 3D development platform because it is easy to learn and is better suited to help the company’s engineers achieve their goal of responding more quickly to market demands for innovative, high-quality equipment. By transitioning to SolidWorks, Sanjel reduced design time by 40 percent, cut development costs by 25 percent, decreased scrap by 50 percent, and improved design communications with field personnel.

Success Metric

  • Reduced design time by 40 percent

  • Cut development costs by 25 percent

  • Decreased scrap by 50 percent

  • Improved design communications with field personnel
