As 2015 comes to a close, we are grateful for yet another great year at B&W Energy Services—perhaps one of the best yet. Throughout 2015, our company has continued to grow and reached several milestones, further attesting to our position as a leader in the industry. In the spirit of the season, we’re taking the time to reflect on some of our accomplishments that made 2015 such a memorable year!
2015 was a year of increasing our international presence, through expansion into new regions. With the Petrocoque project in Cubatão, Brazil and the Refinery project Cartagena, Colombia, we expanded our scope of work into a new region and new countries. We look forward to future new opportunities in South America throughout 2016. In addition to Brazil, we have also become a prominent pre-commissioning and commissioning service provider in the Middle East this year, as we were awarded engineering support and AquaLazing services on the Sadara Project in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia. B&W Energy Services has once again led the pre-commissioning and commissioning industry across the globe.
B&W has also experienced significant growth this year in our engineering and commissioning services. We’ve taken on new projects and new clients, each of which has allowed us to expand our knowledge and experience in these areas. 2015 was a year that provided many opportunities for B&W to display and provide full turnkey support for projects, thanks to our global presence and amount of project experience.
In January, B&W Energy Services took on a new look, complete with a redesigned logo, website and full re-brand. The launch of B&W’s new brand image has propelled us into the next level of competition, and we are confident that 2016 will bring forth new opportunities for success. We are appreciative of the positive global reception of B&W’s new brand image, which has allowed us to clearly communicate the benefit of our services and our accomplishments in the industry.
2015 has also brought an increase in the number of B&W team members. Our staff has continued to grow, and we moved into a second office near our home office in Deer Park, Texas. Looking forward to 2016, we are expanding our recruitment of military veteran employees, who currently make up 25% of our team. Without our exceptional and qualified team members, B&W Energy Services would not be the company it is today!
Unfortunately, we also lost a dear friend and colleague in August. Joe Menis, who joined the B&W team in 2009 as a Senior Project Engineer, was a valuable member of our staff and is greatly missed. We are grateful for the amount of support we received from clients and individuals who had the pleasure of meeting Joe over the years.
2015 has been a busy year for B&W and we are looking forward to what 2016 holds. We are appreciative of our clients and customers every single day, and we are excited to continue working with you in the coming year.
