A humble beginning

In 2000, Fedor got his start in the oilfield supply business as a salesman for a manufacturing company out of Erie, PA in 2000. As he honed his skills, Fedor was constantly asked by customers to source equipment his employer didn’t supply. In 2006, operating from his family’s kitchen table, Fedor founded Liberty Tools LLC to supply the hard-to-find materials his customers demanded and help American manufacturers export their products into emerging markets.

In 2016, sensing opportunity, Fedor established Vorex USA, the overseas arm of the operation. The company’s mission is simple: we help countries establish energy independence by supplying the equipment, materials and know-how they need. Our products are manufactured to the highest US industry standard, transparently priced and delivered on time, wherever needed.
