Michel Chammas

With over 35 years of experience, Michel Chammas is synonymous with the pipe recovery industry. Prior to opening Chammas Cutters in 2009, Michel worked with his late uncle Eddie who helped pioneer the chemical cutting technology in the mid-50s. Michel spent 25 years at Pipe Recovery Systems, where he was trained and coached on chemical cutters and pipe retrieval systems by Eddie. Chammas Cutters carries the responsibility of the Chammas family tradition of providing the highest quality equipment, service, and technical support. Michel has kept the chemical cutter tool relevant by modifying components to fit industry needs and offering comprehensive training for today’s field personnel. Michel started on a new project for cutting oilfield tubulars without explosive material. In 2019 Michel began working on a new project to cut oilfield tubulars without the need for explosive material. After design and extensive field testing, Chammas Plasma Cutters was created to provide thermite-based plasma cutters. The Chammas team is pleased to offer both chemical and plasma cutters to its customers.
