Redi Services, LLC
Effective July 1, 2013 there will be several organizational changes that we wish to convey and communicate to the Redi team. These changes include the following:
Formation of Estimation/Project Management Department (Department Number 230)
Effective July 1st Justin Aimone will be assigned a new position in the company. Justin will head up a newly formed department that will coordinate estimation and large project management. As Manager Of Projects Justin will be primarily focusing on project estimating and assisting with other department managers in the successful performance of mulit-department projects. While Justin has over the years performed these tasks to a limited degree, it was felt that the company has grown to the point that there were efficiencies to be gained by formalizing this important role for Justin. We envision Justin continuing his strong involvement in large projects that involve multiple departments within Wyoming and expanding companywide.
With the establishment of this new department we are transferring Sim Aimone and Sam Morton into the Estimation/Project Management department (Department 230) with Justin as their direct supervisor. Sim will function as a site project manager, with initial responsibilities for the Ryckman Creek project. Sam Morton will continue in his estimation role. Attached is an overview on this new department, its objectives and how it will work within the Redi business model.
Ben Kemp Assignment over Department 130
Effective July 1st Ben Kemp will be assigned as the mechanical manager for Department 130. This is a new role for Ben, who has been serving as the firm’s DOT director in the Lyman office safety department. Ben will be responsible for several mechanical crews and in moving this facet of the business forward.
Formation of Pinedale Field Services Department (Department 330)
Effective July 1st the company will establish a new department (number 330) to capture the activities associated with the well hookup crews that have for years been deployed for QEP in the Pinedale area. Sergio Saenz has served well as our Redi field supervisor to the crews performing this ongoing work. Sergio will continue in this important field service activity for QEP. What will also change effective July 1, 2013 is that Sergio and his crews will now be joining with Luke Brown and our Pinedale team. Luke will serve as the area manager over this operation.
Several other company activities and efforts have been recently undertaken that we thought might also be informative for our Redi team members to be aware of. They are noted below.
Establishment of a Williston, North Dakota Shop Facility
Recently Redi was successful in obtaining a shop and facility in Williston. Western North Dakota continues to experience strong and robust market activity levels. It was determined that having a facility in Williston will enable Redi to capture more market shares in an efficient manner in the Bakken Field. The implementation of a Williston location will complement our existing shop and office facility in Minot, North Dakota. We took over the Williston facility in early June.
Establishment of Odessa, Texas Shop/Facility
Redi established a presence in West Texas in early June. As was announced earlier, Joel Wiedrich was transferred to West Texas to head up our operations. Redi will initially be providing hydro excavation and insulation services and will expand our market lines as we progress. We are happy to report that our Texas operations had secured a variety of work opportunities and commitments that will add value to the company’s forward progress. The Permian Basin of West Texas is one of the most active plays in the lower 48 with over 400 drilling rigs in operation.
Payroll Payment Moving to Friday
In connection with the utilization of a payroll service company to meet the ever expanding and complicated matters dealing with payroll administration, Redi Services will be moving its pay day to Friday from Thursday. This will take place by the end of July 2013. Currently those company employees paid via electronic payments had their paycheck amount electronically posted into their accounts on Thursday. However, utilization of the 3rd party service will necessitate the posting of paycheck monies electronic on Fridays. For those paid via a paper check, the checks will be mailed from Salt Lake City, Utah on Fridays. Redi Services is unable to predict when paper checks will arrive at the designated address of the company employee. We are left to the vagaries of the US Postal system.
Summary Overview of
Roles and Tasks
Commencing July 2013 Redi Services will initiate a separate Estimation/Project Management Department. Justin Aimone will head up this department. Outlined below is more information associated with this initiative.
Purpose: To establish a single point of contact for Redi mangers, clients, administrative personnel for estimating or bidding projects when a single point of contact is needed or most optimal. This single point establishment can not only be utilized for new construction, but has application for large, multi-departmental craft turnarounds.
Benefits: Establishment of this department should improve our bidding process as we will be consistent in our bidding process, increase bidding knowledge and insights, and enable the firm to be timely in meeting bid deadlines. This centralized approach should also help in minimizing errors and omission of key bid projections.
How does the implementation of this new department differ from our current process?
