The Manhattan Difference

Our Commitment to You

Why ‘Manhattan’?

“As a young boy growing up in the Midwest” explains founder Chris Schoettelkotte “my dad would shake his head at my big ideas and say ‘you want all of Manhattan, don’t you?’. Before I ever knew about the island in New York, Manhattan, to me, meant wanting more. It was an innate dissatisfaction with the status quo, and the pursuit of something much better. And I knew that nobody, not even my father, was going to hand it to me. I had to go out and get it.”

Manhattan Resources was founded on this principal of the perpetual pursuit of excellence. A dogged determination to serve the exacting needs of our clientele sets us beyond the ‘industry standard’. Our own growth, profitability and success as an organization are inextricably linked to our ability to assemble the finest leadership teams in the energy sector. We don’t rely on industry benchmarks and averages to qualify our work; we make sure it’s as good as it can possibly be.
