I’m learning so much as a Bossier Chamber of Commerce Diplomat. Local business has become my new interest. I enjoy hearing about new businesses, but even more, I enjoy meeting the people who are putting their faith in the Bossier and Shreveport communities to help them succeed in their endeavors.Titanium Environmental Services, LLC has recently expanded their services in the Shreveport-Bossier area. A ribbon cutting at the Bossier Chamber of Commerce gave me an opportunity to meet the local contact, Tony Pierce, and learn more about what they do. The company provides consulting and litigation support for individual or industrial clients in the oil, gas, steel and cement industries, among others. They offer specific knowledge about air, water and waste environmental compliance. Titanium began in the year 2000 with two employees and currently have 18 employees who serve clients all over the United States. Titanium Environmental Services, LLC (TES) provides many types of environmental and regulatory compliance services including permitting, auditing, training, reporting and preparation of plans. Whether you need an individual permit application or turn-key environmental management, Titanium strives to provide these services in the most efficient manner possible.
Now, on to the reason for the strange title of today’s blog: What’s in a name? My assumption that TES either sold or produced products made of titanium was way off base. Mitch Wilson, who is the Principal founder of Titanium, explained that he had been involved in a bicycle accident. He was badly hurt and had several areas of his body that had been rebuilt using titanium. He also had a friend who had been put back together with titanium. In their discussions, they came to the conclusion that titanium is light-weight, high-tech and was inside both of them. Titanium helped them both overcome adversity and helped them heal. Hence the name was decided. The logo is a symbolic bicycle chain cog. What a great story that reflects a bit of the human spirit.
The Shreveport location of Titanium Environmental Services is located at 9140 New Castle Drive, Shreveport, LA 71129, phone 318-703-4260. Give Tony Pierce a call if you are in need of environmental services and tell him you read my blog.
See ya around Bossier,
