Danos Fabrication Facility Creates 150 Jobs

Danos, a family owned oil and gas service company, announced plans to expand its fabrication capabilities, by opening a 120,000 square-foot fabrication facility in Amelia, La. The new facility, set to begin operations in October 2014, sits on about 45 acres of waterfront property and will create employment opportunities for about 150 workers.

“The demand for our services is growing rapidly, and the size, location and condition of the Amelia facility allows us to better meet the needs of our customers,” Eric Danos, executive vice president, said. “The fabrication facility is about four times the size of our current facility, and its strategic location on Bayou Boeuf provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, allowing Danos to go from producing truckable projects of 40 tons or less, to projects of 500 tons or greater.”

The company’s current fabrication shop, a 14,000 square-foot, 50 employee operation located in Larose, La., will remain open in order to continue offering rapid response to clients in the Fourchon area, as well as handling piping and smaller structural projects – a service Danos has successfully provided for more than 40 years.

In addition to taking on overflow work from the Larose shop, the Amelia facility will allow Danos to take on larger, multiphase projects, including: fabrication, non-destructive testing, coatings, instrumentation and electrical and integrated project support services.

“We will need to hire a team of qualified, results-driven employees to work at the Amelia facility,” Danos said. “Initially, we have 50 positions to fill, and we plan to hire an additional 100 employees over the first 12-18 months of operation. It’s exciting to be able to provide great job opportunities for the region.”
