Inside The Industry: Industrial Maintenance
Rodney Greenup, President of Greenup Industries, along with staff
For Greenup Industries, 2017 was a busy year. With six divisions and offices in three states, the industrial maintenance company won a number of contracts and awards that will lead to continued expansion over the next year.
Greenup Industries was recognized by Inc. Magazine as the 208th fastest growing privately held business in the country and 3rd in Louisiana, an enormous honor for the five-year-old company. Also in 2017, Greenup received several safety awards from the Gulf Coast Safety Council with new nominations in another two categories.
Services of Greenup Industries include electrical and instrumentation control systems, corrosion services, geotechnical engineering, and both land-based and hydro surveying. The company was incorporated in 2012 to become an industrial general contractor, and a multi-year contract for a major petrochemical provider allowed the company to transition from simply managing vendors to also performing skilled and unskilled services.
The company acquired new contracts in the utilities/power sector this year and plans to hire several dozen skilled craftsmen in 2018, which will expand its base. It is also expanding an apprenticeship program that began this year in partnership with a client and local community college. In response to the need for local workers, the apprenticeship program seeks to improve the talent pool in the River Parishes and south Louisiana. While Hurricane Harvey put on hold Greenup Industries’ plans to open an office in south Texas, that expansion will be revisited next year.
In the community, Greenup Industries is an annual partner and contributor to the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Walk.
“It’s truly a company event with a lot of participation from our employees,” says Rodney Greenup, Jr., President.
