Annual State of the Business Meeting

Crest Industries hosted a gathering of more than 100 leaders of its operating companies to discuss the current state of the business. Operating companies represented included Beta Engineering, DIS-TRAN, Mid-State Supply, Millennium Galvanizing, Precision Cutting Specialties and Crest Natural Resources.

Beta Engineering reported extensive project activity throughout the country, including in the southwestern U.S., an area served in part by Beta’s San Diego office. Beta anticipates increasing its employee count by 20% in 2015 to support growing project work. Beta’s business focus has been the design and construction of FACTS and GIS projects in addition to traditional high voltage substations and transmission lines. 

Focus on Safety and Incident Prevention

Kenny Jeansonne, a QA/QC manager for Beta, is a Certified Occupational Safety Specialist. COSS is a training program designed by safety professionals to equip employees with the core competencies they need to enhance occupational safety and health. 
Beta has started the design work for several STATCOM projects in the Virginia Beach area. The projects include the engineering, procurement and construction of 230kV STATCOM's at existing substations. Construction on the projects is scheduled to begin soon.


Beta sponsored a team for the American Heart Association’s Central Louisiana Heart Walk in March 2014. Held in Alexandria, Louisiana, the Heart Walk raised more than $150,000 to fund research and programs to prevent and treat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
Beta was proud to sponsor Fluor’s annual Golf for Greater Houston tournament in Texas. The event raised money for local charities including LifeHouse of Houston, Lunches of Love, Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Station and USO.
