Glenn G. Chance was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1930, and enlisted in the Marines when he came of age during the Korean War. He returned in 1951 to work for the Lee C. Moore corporation, manufacturing drilling tools. A few years later, Chance started his own firm, Chance Sales & Service. He was soon after scooped up by Drilco, and Chance relocated to Morgan City to oversee a manufacturing shop. Chance, in 1976, started another firm, named Chance Collar Company. By the 1970s, multiple firms were licensing Chance’s patented drilling innovations. He sold the company in 1982, luckily cashing out before the big slump in the business during the mid-1980s.
