Danny Uselton – President
Mr. Uselton has almost 40 years of experience in the OCTG pipe industry. Living and working in the oilfields of West Texas (Midland), he acquired a very broad-base understanding of how the operations side of the oil industry worked. As a result of an extremely well rounded perspective, he quickly learned to identify operational problems and conceptualize plausible solutions.
With his experience and insight, he has been instrumental in creating and expanding products and services designed around the needs of our OCTG customers. Early in his career, he worked his way from the field to serve as Permian Basin Division Manager for a large OCTG pipe inspection company. He was later appointed Vice-President of the company and moved to Houston, Texas, the domestic hub of pipe operations in America. During this time period, Mr. Uselton was instrumental in defining several new products and innovative solutions for the pipe industry. In 1995, Mr. Uselton was appointed President of Scan Systems™ Corp. and was elected to the Board of Directors of the company.
Today, he provides vision and direction for Scan Systems™ by serving as CEO of the company. In order to continue providing unique solutions for today’s operational problems, he remains close with key industry personnel and is directly involved in all four of Scan Systems™’ operating divisions; PITCO® (Pipe Inspection Technologies), Tally-Rite™ Measuring Systems, EDM Specialties™, and TDS© (Tubular Data Systems). Under Mr. Uselton’s leadership, Scan Systems™ has grown from a small business to a world-class organization serving a global market.
