“Culliton has proven to be a strong partner for us,” said Schlumberger. “They don’t just take the solutions as we present them but they work with us, giving us feedback on new products and sometimes they customize it to make it work for them,” said Schlumberger.  “It’s that constant drive to be better, that willingness to take a risk on something new that sets them apart and makes them such a great successful, Canadian business.”
