Action Looks Back at the Past Year

Action Specialties Remembering 2015

2015 has certainly been a year to remember! Action Specialties celebrated our 20th year in business, and it sure was a memorable 20th.

From opening a new office in Houston Texas to expanding our sales staff. From building new relationships with customers to cultivating long-standing friendships. Through the ups and downs that out region has experienced in 2015, it’s our friends and customers who have made our continued growth possible at all.

We appreciate each and every individual who has made 2015 a year to remember. Here’s to another 20 years and even more!

Two of Team Action Reach Retirement

What makes Action Specialties so special is our Team. More than just employees, the people that work here are family. And this week, we sadly say goodbye to two of those family members who have reached retirement.

After being here for 18 and 15 years respectively, Ms. Geri and Ms. Laura are beginning their retirement in 2016.

If you’ve ever worn an altered garment or picked up a package at Action Specialties, you’ve surely been a part of the handiwork of these two incredible ladies. We absolutely wish them the best in all of their endeavors, but we know they won’t be strangers!

The Cajundome Presents Toruk, the First Flight

Toruk

 

Action Specialties has had the pleasure of serving Acadiana’s premier music venue, the Cajundome and Convention Center. In that capacity, we are proud to help them welcome the entertainers of “Toruk: the First Flight,” a live experience by Cirque du Soleil, inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar!

When artists or events come through our city, the Cajundome has made it a point to welcome them with open arms! To make them feel right at home, Action Specialties has designed a number of custom wall-cling signs to line the halls of the artists’ entryway. Just a small token to show these performers that we appreciate their stop in our neck of the woods!

TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi. GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY!

Proud Sponsors of the 4th Annual Franks Chili Cook Off

IMG_3985

Since the first year of the event, Action Specialties has been a proud supporter and sponsor of the Franks Chili Cook Off. Team Action was proud to not only sponsor this annual philanthropic hit, but also entered a team in the Chili Cook Off itself! All of the proceeds, from sponsorship dollars to public admission fees, go towards the noble efforts of The United Way of Acadiana.

While chili is the name of the game for the annual event, Action Specialties is known for its “hotter” offerings… our famous stuffed jalapeño peppers! We dished out pepper poppers and our delicious chili to the crowds who came with their appetites ready! While our local Oil and Gas Industry has fallen on some tough times, it was great to see the community come out and support a great cause regardless of that fact. It was a true display of the strength of Acadiana and beyond!

We look forward to next year and yet another opportunity to do good for the community we call home!

LAGCOE 2015

Action Specialties at the Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition

LAGCOEEmailHeader

For over 20 years, Action Specialties has proudly served the Oil and Gas Industry of the Gulf Coast and beyond. Every second year, the “Who’s Who” of that industry gather for one of the region’s premier oilfield expositions, LAGCOE. Action Specialties was a proud exhibitor and sponsor of LAGCOE 2015.

IMG_3863

In its 60th year, LAGCOE has become more than just an expo, it has become an economic driving force for the community in which it takes place. The name recognition alone amongst industry experts has helped cement LAGCOE as one of the premier trade shows for the industry. With this in mind, the coordinators of LAGCOE decided to help attendees and exhibitors show their pride and remember this event with commemorative merchandise, which Action Specialties was very proud to provide. With artwork created by locally renowned artist, Tony Bernard, the tees were destined to be a hit.

Most years, Action Specialties is usually present in an attendee capacity, taking time to visit with the scores of our customers who have booths at the show. For 2015, Team Action made the move to exhibit at this cornerstone event. We know that times are hard in our industry, especially along the Gulf Coast. With this in mind, we wanted to show our support for that industry and let our customers know that we are still here to serve them!

MoonBoothTo commemorate our first LAGCOE as an exhibitor, we wanted to do something that would would put our booth on the map while showing our support for the industry. After talking with our media partners at Townsquare Media, we took the opportunity to present Louisiana’s own, Moon Griffon, live from our booth at LAGCOE! On air, we had some great conversation about the show, the oilfield, and our business here at Action Specialties. Each of our company representatives got some time to talk on air with Moon, and we appreciate the opportunity to tell our story to the people of the Gulf Coast!

We are thrilled with the relationships we were able to build upon, renew, and begin at this show. We look forward to 2017 when LAGCOE will return to the dome!

Each year, the Acadiana Area arm of the American Cancer Society presents it’s “For a Cure” Golf Classic, an event that Action Specialties has proudly been a part of for the last number of years. With cancer being an all-too-familiar reality for many of the families that comprise Team Action, the ACS is one of those causes that is close to our collective heart.

Team Action took to the greens of the Koasati Pines Golf Course in order to raise funds for this worthy cause. The two day event was full of fun and fellowship, all for a good cause!

Team Action at the SPE Tech Conference 2015

SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition 2015

Nearly 150,000 feet of exhibit space. More than 13,500 registered attendees. 515 Exhibiting companies. ONE Show. The 2015 Society of Petroleum Engineers Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition was one for the record books. Even though our industry is feeling the pinch, the conference saw some of the highest levels of exhibition and attendance in the show’s history. Among those companies filling the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston was Action Specialties.

Action Specialties SPE BoothWith such volatility in the Oil and Gas Industry at the present, it was a great pleasure to see such a large turnout for this prestigious exhibition. It was a rare opportunity to be able to spend so face-to-face time with many of our out of state customers as well as getting to meet new friends and potential customers.

We look forward to returning to Houston in December for the next Expo in line, the Houston Oilfield Expo, which will take place in the same halls that hosted the SPE Technical Conference and Exhibition.
