Headquarters: Wilson - Houston, TX; CE Franklin - Calgary, AB
2011 Revenues: $2.62 billion

PVF distributor Wilson continues to change hands. In 2010 it was sold by Smith International to Houston-based Schlumberger. In May 2012, it was announced that Schlumberger was divesting Wilson to National Oilwell Varco Inc. (NYSE: NOV), which is paying nearly $800 million for Wilson. In addition to PVF, Wilson sells mill, tool and safety products and services to the international energy markets and other industrial customers. The Wilson acquisition according to some estimates doubles National Oilwell Varco's distribution footprint.
