Its products include packers, bridge plugs, accessories and tubing swivels used during well stimulation work. Most products are highly configurable and assembled to order. The company produced its first tools – a tubing swivel line – in 1978 and started manufacturing packers and bridge plugs in the 1980s. Major customers range from large oilfield servicing companies such as Schlumberger Ltd. and Weatherford International to more than 100 independent well servicing companies. Target markets outside of the Permian Basin include oil fields in Wyoming, Colorado, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Kline also ships to customers in Canada, Indonesia, Australia and South America. 208
