We’re Building…Local Business

Rodney Fruge and Doug Landry
Co-owners, Howell Industries

“As Sasol has grown, so have we. Once the new facilities are up and running, small businesses like Howell Industries will benefit from the increased maintenance needs of the Sasol complex. Sasol’s new petrochemical complex will bring long-term manufacturing jobs to the area and generate demand for local services for decades to come.”

Howell Industries, established in 1965, is the largest machining and fabrication service shop in Southwest Louisiana and is one of the largest on the U.S. Gulf Coast. The company was recently recognized by the Louisiana Department of Economic Development as a Lantern Award winner for dedication to the community and business growth. Howell Industries specializes in industrial services, including machining, fabrication and repair. For Sasol, Howell Industries performs mechanical work ranging from compressor overhauls to equipment repairs to ethylene furnace tube fabrication.
