With 2018 coming to a close, we want to express our gratitude to all our employees who contribute daily to make Onpoint Industrial Services the best it possibly can be. This year was full of growth and success for our company, and we are eager to share Onpoint’s accomplishments with those who helped make it happen!
First, we are excited to announce that by the end of 2018, we will have crossed over one million SAFE man hours. This is an incredible achievement, as we so value the safety of our employees and go incredible lengths to ensure safety across all job sites and turnarounds. We contribute this success to our highly-trained safety personnel and to our continual commitment to safety in all aspects of our business.
Going into 2019, a large focus will be placed on recruiting qualified, talented members to join our Onpoint family. We would also like to highlight that in October, we hit our employment record every single week, with a total of 922 employees just in that one month.
We specifically want to thank the teams at the LyondellBasell Bayport, ExxonMobil Beaumont, CITGO Corpus Christi, Lemont and Lake Charles, Phillips 66 Lake Charles, Valero Norco and Chevron Phillips Port Arthur. The first half of 2019 is slated to be the busiest time for Onpoint, focusing on projects in Beaumont, Port Arthur, Houston, Corpus Christi, New Orleans, Lake Charles and Chicago.
Again, we want to thank all who have a hand in our success this year, and we are eager to jump into a busy season in 2019.
