Benoit, a leading provider of premium threading, completion products, and engineered services to the upstream oil and gas industry, recently opened an impressive, new facility in Ennis, Texas. The project was a $17MM capital investment and has created 27 new jobs and growing.
"We’re new to the area but we are quickly establishing roots in the community. When Benoit was first looking to expand to a new manufacturing facility the City of Ennis stood out as an excellent location. We required quick access to major transportation routes, a central location to the shale plays where our customers use our products, and the ability to attract talented employees. Ennis provided everything we needed to be able to make this investment. Since we began production in March 2022 we have completely staffed our initial shift and now we are looking for additional team members to add our second shift. Our team members in Ennis have worked hard to improve our processes and create efficiencies. I am pleased to say that we have exceeded the initial production rates we anticipated. I am very proud of what we are building in Ennis and I am very excited about the future.”-Ron Pederson, CEO & Chairman
Ennis is once again proving to be an incredible community to expand or start a business.
Benoit’s established facility is in Houma, Louisiana. The second floor of the Ennis building is the Louisiana floor and has a mural that pays homage to New Orleans, Bourbon Street and an alligator. There is also artwork that pays tribute to Ennis history.
