A Proud Past and a Solid Future

This slogan was selected from a contest held among McJunkin employees in 1971 when the company was celebrating its 50th year in business. In 1977 Lew Ketchum, a Delaware Indian, turned a dream into reality when he founded Red Man Pipe & Supply Co., the nation’s only full-service, minority-owned oil field supply company. On November 1, 2007 McJunkin Corporation and Red Man Pipe & Supply Company merged to form, what is now, MRC Global. The history of our new company continues to develop daily.
