Since 2008, Thomas Industrial Coatings has had the privilege of being a part of the Huey P. Long bridge widening project. Now that project is beginning to wind down, and soon the men and women of our NOLA crew will have finished their job. Looking back, they’ve put in an awful lot of quality work they should be very proud of over the last five years. But while pride in a job well done is its own reward, our CEO Don Thomas wanted to show his great appreciation for everything Team Thomas has accomplished with a little bit of fun down on the Mississippi River.

Last Saturday, our workers, their families, and our entire TIC office staff were treated to a riverboat cruise aboard the Creole Queen for a night of food, dancing, and music. Everyone got a chance to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves after years of hard work dedicated to a successful and safe project.

On Sunday, Huey P.Long Project Manager Josh Thomas took everyone on a tour of the bridge, providing a great opportunity for the families of our crew members to see exactly what Team Thomas does on a daily basis. For those who have never gotten a chance to see our team at work, it was quite the eye-opener.

Everyone here at Thomas Industrial Coatings would like to thank Don Thomas for his generosity in hosting such a great event. And to everyone on our NOLA crew, thank you for your incredible efforts on the Huey P. Long project, and for being true examples of Thomas Pride. Congratulations to all!
