Stocking the shelves... Argos FPU

We have reached a milestone in our journey realizing the fruits of our toils! Lots of preparations in organizing and procuring the necessary start-up consumables, tools and operation spare parts. These materials continue to arrive at Cross Dock facility in Houma, La., are packaged accordingly, then shipped to Texas as planned.

Argos FPU warehouse is managed by Eugene “Penguin” Rodrigue and Larry Mueller. Their combined experiences are measured in decades. Rotating on their perspective work schedules, they continue to engage eagerly to get these materials offloaded and into the proper shelves or in the hands of the requestor.

It’s just the beginning….. endless activities encountered daily. From mundane to complex issues that surface, they approach each with a sincere desire to satisfy the end users.

Argos is outfitted with adjustable shelving and lockable modular cabinets as built, a unique benefit and an outstanding design feature. Included is key coded lockable entry doors and a service countertop with a sliding gate. Organized, efficient and secure! Key components to maintaining inventory integrity for years to come.

Thank you, “Penguin” Rodrigue and Larry Mueller for your safe and quality contributions to the Argos FPU team!

Not to forget, the combined efforts by many individuals and groups, including the GoM MM&D team that will never fail to collaborate and act as a team.

Penguin proceeded to give additional recognition to two additional Danos employees, Jordan Yentzen and Tyler Parjus, for their assistance with Argos FPU.”

Due to Penguin, Larry, Jordan and Tyler, BP can mark the warehouses off their list of things to worry about before sailing out to location. With their leadership and work ethic, Argos will be set up for success in the future. Well done Penguin and team!
