Houston – June 15, 2007
On June 15th, Total Safety U.S., Inc. acquired Payne Services, Inc. (PSI). Payne Services’ primary lines of business include safety personnel and staff, confined space attendants, safety training, and contract industrial hygienists. The company was founded in 1989 and has service locations in Donaldsonville, LA, Pasadena, TX, and Corpus Christi, TX, which further complements Total Safety’s presence on the Gulf Coast.
“We are very excited about Payne Services joining the Total Safety family. The business lines Payne delivers are extremely complementary to the safety services Total Safety provides and will further broaden our service offering,” said David E. Fanta, Chief Executive Officer of Total Safety. “The combination of Payne’s personnel services management system and Total Safety’s extensive sales network will allow us to grow the business globally and meet the expectations of customers as they seek enhanced integrated safety solutions in today’s active market.”
“The opportunity to combine Payne’s safety services with Total Safety’s global presence was too appealing to ignore. The petrochemical and refining industry will no longer have to hire multiple safety contractors for their turnaround and maintenance safety needs,” said Robbie Payne, Vice President of Payne Services. “I am even more excited to join such a well respected industry leader and look forward to continuing to provide the highest level of service to our clients.”
The combination of these two well respected companies and their management and employee teams will continue to allow us to meet the expectations of our customers and further provide our enhanced safety service solutions. Our number one goal is to make this change as smooth as possible and to continue to execute our mission, “to ensure the safe Wellbeing of Workers Worldwide”.
