Performance

From the ground up

Performance doubles pipe fabrication capacity

With construction complete on our new pipe fabrication facility in Port Allen, Louisiana, Performance Contractors begins operation of its fourth pipe fabrication facility along the Gulf Coast. This marks the completion of our second new pipe fabrication facility within the past year, doubling our spool capacity. Additionally, we opened a new pipe support fabrication facility in Mobile, AL in early 2015. Fabricating pipe at four facilities in 250,000 square feet of shop space along with pipe support fabrication enables us to support all delivery and field execution requirements.
