[ BY M A R TA J I M É N E Z - L U T T E R ] Continuous capital improvements have helped. the company grow significantly.. • Lakewood, Colo. Wildcat Minerals describes itself as an “unconventional company serving unconventional basins.” Cindy Hayek and her husband Steve Herron started the company in 2007 when they realized there was a need in the energy sector for integrated logistics solutions for sand distribution. The founders, both geologists with years of experience in the application of sand in industrial minerals, decided to break into this newly expanding market for frac sand, which later grew rapidly into a high-capacity, high-volume transportation network servicing a majority of the unconventional basins. With continuous capitol improvements, Wildcat experienced rapid growth in the industry, going from two employees, husband and wife, to 150 in just five years. The company increased its presence from one operation in Arkansas to 14 locations spread out in Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Kansas and, soon, Wyoming. The company has also increased the volume of materials it handles. “We started handling about 1,000 rail cars the PROFILE “Logistics is going to continue being an area of growth for our customers because the volume of oilfield consumables is not projected to go down, it’s growing.” // STEVE HERRON, founder and CEO Wildcat Minerals. Headquarters: Lakewood, Colo. | Employees: 150 Specialty: Material handling and distribution of oilfield consumables 84
