DistributionNOW hosted PESA and Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX-36) on April 15 at the distribution center in La Porte, TX. The Congressman toured DistributionNOW’s warehouse and experienced first-hand a vital cog of the oilfield and equipment sector’s supply chain.
Babin sits on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, as well as the Science, Space and Technology Committee, both of which have jurisdiction over vital parts of the oil and gas industry.
During the tour, he met many employees and discussed their roles within the company. He was able to provide the participants with insight into Congress and answer questions about the future of the oil and gas industry. Babin, a native of Port Arthur, represents Texas’ 36th Congressional District – located southeast of Houston and extending to the Louisiana border, encompassing portions of Jasper, Polk, Orange, Liberty and Harris counties. Babin has represented Texas-36 since his election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014.
PESA has hosted several Congressional tours recently, including Baker Hughes, a GE company with Rep. Sylvia Garcia, Kerr Pumps with Rep. Tom Cole and BJ Services with Rep. Michael McCaul.
