From G.T. “Butch” Darce
As we celebrate our twenty-third year in business, I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to those who have taken this journey alongside me: our customers, our suppliers, vendors, employees – you – our friends.
Our company began in 1996 with two employees, a telephone and a fax machine. When we got started, we had one client lined-up in the Gulf of Mexico. Our customer-base was (and still is) the offshore energy industry. An industry that was facing price movements, generally downhill at a rather speedy decline. Opening the business felt right but required a huge leap of faith. I had the loving support of my wife and family – I was ready and jumped right in.
Our humble beginnings started with a few, but now we are many. At that time, we could hardly foresee our extraordinary growth to a global company with over 2,100 personnel supporting thousands of customers each day at our client’s facilities in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia and the U.S. at some of the most challenging remote operations in the world. This expansion was made possible through the dedication and hard work of each member of the Taylors team. Some of our team have been with us for over 20 years and have become family.
IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE
TO OUR CLIENTS – Your trust and support have been the biggest driver to our continued growth and success. I am appreciative and honored to work with you. I would like to thank you for your belief in us and our abilities to help you achieve your goals and vision of success, while always challenging us to be better. The Taylors Team is continuously enriched by the people that we’ve met and worked with at our client organizations. Many of these people have also become friends and advisors, allowing us to grow and learn individually, and, as a company. Thank you for your unwavering commitment and great relationships.
TO OUR TAYLORS TEAM MEMBERS – To successfully be in business for 23 years requires talented, passionate, caring people. Your willingness to give of yourselves and help each other is special and deeply admired. Thank you for not letting this company fail, not even once.
This is not just a corporate anniversary, it’s an anniversary of a family that only grew strong by defying the odds and overcoming challenges along this journey. The foundation to our 23 years of success can be attributed to a wholehearted commitment to our core values, the special personal touch we put on service, our dedication to customer satisfaction, our staunch commitment to quality, our pledge to our employees and their families, and the value we put on relationships. Thank you for a special 23 years and here’s to celebrating the next successful chapter together.
