About Ace

Recognising that not all products are created equal, Ace was founded in 2012 upon the belief that it was possible to create a tool which was easy to install, and reliably anchor tools to tubing with an extremely high holding force. From here the Ace Ratchet Collar was developed.

The Ace Ratchet Collar is the first 90,000lb+ rated stop collar on the market.  Suitable for close tolerance operations, ARC offers an effective solution for securely locking  additional downhole components on to any tube. With no loose parts and no impact on drift, our ARC technology is suitable for even the harshest of operating conditions.


From our headquarters in Stavanger, Norway we use the Ace Ratchet Collar as the foundation for wider product development.

We have continued our commitment to creating greater value for our customers through innovative product development and we offer a variety of high-quality tools that are simple, cost effective and easy to install.


Our teams are located in Stavanger, Norway and Houston, USA and work across the world to develop and maintain strong and lasting customer relationships.


We pride ourselves on our ability to meet the challenges of our customers, operating flexibly to
