In 1927, the early days of the East Texas Oil Boom, Frank E. Hutchison founded Hutchison Manufacturing Company to serve the many aspects of the oil industry. In 1938, Mr. Hutchison introduced the "RUMBA" shale shaker to the drilling industry to separate hole cuttings from the drilling mud. He coined the phrases "Shale Shaker" and "Rumba Action" to describe the shale shaker's vibratory motion.

Today Hutchison Hayes continues to be a leader in this field with its high performance drilling mud centrifuges.
