The Legacy - Since 1936

1936 Perry Equipment corporation was founded in 1936 by Mr Perry Snr as a proprietorship. The operation moved to Dallas in 1941 and then to Mineral Wells in 1949, which is the same year the Company was incorporated. The principle market initially was Lube Oil Filters for compressors in the oil industry. The Company continued to manufacture pressure vessels and replacement elements for the oil & gas market and expanded its offering to include filters for dry gas, liquids and eventually filter separators.
