Houston energy industry staffing firm acquires out-of-state consultancy
Cenergy International Services LLC, a Houston-based staffing company that focuses on the oil and gas industry, has acquired Louisiana-based Control Zone Solutions, allowing Cenergy to expand into safety consulting.
The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
“Control Zone Solutions' extensive safety program aligned perfectly with our company’s vision," said Megan Alarid, chief development officer at Cenergy.
Control Zone applies military safety training techniques to help companies, mostly in the oil and gas industry, develop their safety programs, according to a statement from Cenergy.
“I grew up working in and around the oilfields of Louisiana and saw that injuries happened even with precautions in place," Kelly Sullivan, founder of Control Zone, said in the statement.
Cenergy recently ranked 10th in a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing women-owned businesses put out by New York organizations The Women Presidents’ Organization and American Express, though Cenergy President and CEO June Ressler doesn't like to lead with the "female" foot when it comes to branding her business.
