• ENTERPRISE CENTER SPOTLIGHT: Squaw Creek Services

    Seeing a need for oil field service contractors and being tired of the corporate world drove Floyd Wilson to become an entrepreneur in April 2014.
    Working out of his home for three years, Floyd began offering lease operator, roustabout, flow-back watch and other services to oil extraction companies. In July 2017, he outgrew his home office and leased space in the Energy Capital Enterprise Center.
    With his new office space, Floyd has continued to see his business, Squaw Creek Services, grow. He currently has 15 field employees, plus himself and an office worker. Annual revenue is about $1.5 million. Floyd hopes to grow his company to 20 to 25 employees and gross at least $2.5 million a year.
    Floyd's sons suggested the name for his company, using the name of a creek in Fremont County where Floyd was raised. His oldest son is now working with Floyd during college breaks. Floyd’s son is majoring in business and plans to return to Gillette after college to work with Floyd.
    Floyd admits the path to successful entrepreneurship is not always easy. He said his crew has done "anything to keep going" when times were slow, including building barns and corral systems for ranches. It's always been important for Floyd to keep his core employees busy because "without them, I wouldn't be where I'm at."
    Floyd and Squaw Creek Services embody entrepreneurship. The Energy Capital Enterprise Center is set up to help businesses like Squaw Creek Services succeed-businesses that create jobs and help diversify the economy.
