Boss Oilfield Supply hosts ribbon cutting, luncheon with chamber

Boss Oilfield Supply hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, Friday, Jan. 18 and held a luncheon for attendees to follow it.

Though, the company has been open since October. Representatives at the company explained the work that went into launching the company, which is located at what used to be Oasis Bar on W. Walker Street.

Gary Drake and Sterling Rutland were two of the main people involved in starting the company up. Drake had been in Breckenridge for 36 years prior to opening Boss. He worked for Knox Oilfield Supply for about two decades, which closed down just weeks before the two set out to make Boss a reality. When Drake left Knox he was replaced by Rutland as the manager. Rutland had also worked under Drake for about five years.
