Our Story


Stark Transportation has been in operation since 1995. The company started out offering pigging hotshot services in the pipeline industry. Gerald Stark and his father joined efforts in 2008 and in 2012, father and son merged their two companies into one. The new company, Stark Transportation and Pipeline Services (Stark), offered pigging equipment delivery and related pipeline pigging services.

Although Stark began as a delivery system for pigging equipment, the company now offers a variety of services that go beyond shipping. From in-field transportation and crane services, to pipeline tracking and data collection, Stark is the only company that delivers pigs to launch and receive sites, and helps supply manpower in the pipeline fields.

Located in Tomball, Texas, the company now owns and operates a fleet of equipment needed to do its job, including more than 12 cranes in various sizes, 20 trucks, 18-wheelers, one-ton pick-ups with trailers and other machinery geared to operate in various terrains across the country. Stark also employs 25 operators who are committed to helping clients overcome even their biggest challenges from the beginning of a project to its completion.

Since 2008, Stark has earned a reputation of delivering on its promises. Dependability, professionalism and safety are paramount to its success. Stark trucks and in-field equipment can now be found at pipeline sites all across North America. The company will even send employees, on a contract basis, to Alaska. Now much more than a one-man, one-truck operation, Stark pulled together the right people, the right resources and the right vision.


Beginning in January 2014, the Bowie, Texas location will allow Stark Transportation to expand its services. They are always finding ways to better service their customer's needs and expand their services. This expansion will position them for aggressive growth in 2014. Stark will be providing regional support to Barnett Shale, Permian Basin and Anadarko Basin in Northern Texas and Oklahoma. The Barnett Shale natural gas field alone is one of the largest natural gas fields in North America, and the largest in the state of Texas.

Stark Transportation plans to hire locally for various positions; Office administrator, Oilfield Sales, Crane Operators, Class A Drivers and many more as the company grows.

In addition to the Bowie location, Stark Transportation will be moving its Houston headquarters to a new building in Waller, Texas conveniently located off of Hwy 290. Construction began in early 2014. The new facility is on 15 acres of property, allowing room for equipment storage and more space to expand their oil and gas services.
