Local Oilfield Service Has Plans to Open New Fabrication Yard in Amelia

by | Friday, September 19, 2014 |

LaRose-based oilfield service company, Danos, has plans to boost job creation when it opens a new fabrication yard in Amelia. The projected job creation from the project is 150 new jobs.

Danos, a family-owned company that builds various structures and equipment for use in offshore gas and oil drilling and production, will open the new, 120,000-square-foot facility in October. The facility will be set on 45 acres of waterfront property.

According to executive vice president, Eric Danos, the company’s present fabrication facility (a fifty-employee, 14,000-square-foot operation in LaRose) will remain open, allowing the company to continue to offer fast service to local clients – particularly in and around Port Fourchon, which is a major service hub for the Gulf of Mexico. Keeping the current facility open will also assist the company in handling the piping and other small structural projects they receive, which they have done for over 40 years.

About Danos

Founded in 1947 by Allan Danos and Syriaque Curole, Danos has served as a strategic partner to gas and oil operators worldwide for over 65 years. Currently, the company has over 1,500 employees and consultants globally.

Recently, Danos executives broke ground on a new corporate headquarters as well – a 64,000-square-foot facility at the intersection of Highway 24 and Highway 90 in LaRose. The complex will provide meeting space and offices for nearly 300 employees. Construction is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2015.

According to Danos President and CEO, Hank Danos, "We've experienced significant growth over the past few years; we've simply outgrown our office building in Larose. We're looking forward to having more space, which will allow us to continue to grow and add more employees in the future."
