HOUSTON, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HII Technologies, Inc. (the "Company"), symbol OTCBB: HIIT, an oilfield services company located in Houston, Texas, with operations in Texas and Oklahoma, today announced a major purchase of water transfer related equipment for use in its AES oilfield frac-related water transfer services division.
On November 8, 2012, the Company purchased over a half million dollars of assets, including 10+ miles of above ground high-volume water transfer pipe, numerous trucks, trailers, manifolds, road crossings, fittings and related equipment. These assets have been immediately deployed by AES to service expanding relationships with existing and new customers in shale, limestone and other tight oil unconventional reservoir areas.
Matt Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies, stated, "We purchased this equipment at very favorable pricing in order to expand our rapidly growing AES water transfer division addressing current customer demand. If purchased new, management estimates this equipment would have cost more than $1.2 million and we believe represents a great value for our stockholders."
The equipment was purchased under court order in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding. To finance the purchase, the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary AES issued a 10% secured note to third party investor, which note is secured by the assets purchased.
