Winning With Teamwork – Q3 2023

We would like to take a moment to acknowledge and congratulate all the hardworking individuals who have received the Winning with Teamwork awards in the past quarter. Your efforts in going above and beyond for our customers and colleagues are the reasons why we succeed! Thank you once again for being a valuable member of the RBO family and for serving all those who rely on us.

 

Adam Brasher
Adam Brasher was nominated for coming in on his off night (he also works nights) with James to fill Argon for Geismar. Adam has not been with RBO long but has obviously seen by the example set in the plant that we step up for each other when we have to. Adam didn’t hesitate to sacrifice an off night to help fill this important order for customers who can’t work without our products. Thank you, Adam!

Monte Cagle
Monte was nominated by Fernando for answering a late-night call for one of our biggest customers, OGE Horseshoe plant. They ran out of CO2 and needed to purge one of their units. He was on the road within 30 minutes of receiving the phone call. Thank you, Monte, for taking care of the customer. This is what sets us apart from our competitors. Congratulations on your WWTW award!

Landon Cole
Landon Cole stepped up recently after some devastating storms in Shreveport that caused widespread power outages. He didn’t hesitate to stay late, until 10 PM, filling dry ice to make sure we had enough available not only for customers but also for many fellow employees affected by the loss of power in this area. Thank you, Landon!

Ryan Davis and Thomas Montgomery
Ryan is another multiple-time WWTW champion, and again, he and Thomas showed why the pipe crew guys get so much well-deserved praise. Ryan and Thomas, alongside our other techs, Michael Orrell and Garrett Westerfield, travel and stay on the road much more than virtually anyone else at RBO. They worked for weeks and months on the installation at Holly Frontier in Kansas. Many obstacles were thrown in their way that we didn’t expect, yet they persevered and successfully installed the two 13,000-gallon Oxygen tanks for a new, great customer for RBO. These guys are constantly on the front lines, installing bulk tanks and pipe jobs for brand-new RBO customers. Thanks for this and many other (hot, far too long, etc.) jobs!

John Gaynor
John was also lucky enough to get the 3 AM wake-up call that the same customer didn’t just need one trailer; they needed 2! John is another veteran with battle scars from the 2021 snowpocalypse of his own to show for it. During that episode, John was hauling the CO2 tanker around for the same power plants that depend on us. Thank you, John; add another trophy to your mantle too!

Chris Gunter
Chris Gunter is no stranger to working extra hours as he leads the Shreveport Fill Plant. He was nominated by Jonathan for the CO2 orders that had to be rushed to Houston. Chris is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything possible is done to fulfill orders for branches safely and on time. Thank you, Chris!

James Jelenik
James Jelenik was also nominated for multiple awards. James came in on his night off (he works the night shift in the SHV plant) to fill Argon Pallet Packs for Geismar when the Argon pump was down. He came in at 11:30 PM and pumped overnight to have the packs ready for the truck by 6:30 AM, which allowed us to deliver to some of our most important construction customers in South La. He was also nominated for coming in, again on his off day, to relieve Robert Whatley, who was filling Hydrogen trailers. He also came in the next day to help fill Medical E cylinders. James is a multiple-time WWTW winner already, and dedication like this shows why! Thank you, James!

Quinn Kennedy
Quinn Kennedy came in to help the overnight shift fill Argon packs for Geismar and stayed until the early morning hours. Quinn doesn’t work the plant but wanted to come to support the guys who came in to help take care of our customers and the ones he has helped us develop relationships with. An effort like this to show support and appreciation for those who come in on off days is awesome. Thank you, Quinn!

Jared Martin
Jared Martin was another one of the guys who worked overnight on the Medical E order until about 2:30 AM on Sunday. What an incredible effort was shown by these guys! Thank you!

Michael Orrell
Michael was nominated by Dalton Oakes. Dalton stated, “Michael is always ready for the call of duty to serve our customers. Recently, one of our large customers, Longhorn Fab’s, Trifecta system went down around 5:00 PM on a Friday afternoon. I called Michael once I received this news and before I could finish my sentence his response was “I’m on it boss!”. He changed directions from heading home and drove over an hour to the customer to start working on the situation. He didn’t leave until later that night and came back over the weekend to pipe in a tube trailer to keep their production running. The following week, Michael was recruited late in the game to help with the Kansas 13,000-gallon oxygen tanks. Without hesitation, he packed his bags and drove up that Sunday and worked through the unexpected hurdles that were thrown their way throughout the job. If you’ve ever had the privilege to work with him, you know his famous words are, “Hey, we’ll do whatever it takes to keep the customer running!” and he lives by that. A true team player who exemplifies what it means to go above and beyond.”

Robert Robinson
Robert Robinson is no stranger to this award, either. Some of you who were here during the Snowpocalypse in 2021 might recall his heroics delivering Hydrogen to power plants in Texas, which resulted in him spending the night in his truck. Well, now he has gotten another WWTW to add to his trophy case. Robert was called out at 3 AM on July 3, when most of us were planning our BBQs, for an emergency order for a refinery in Texas. This is a critical customer, and yet again, Robert got out of bed, came down, and hooked up for a long early morning run. Our Hydrogen distribution network is truly critical to the infrastructure in this region, and we couldn’t have made it happen without guys like Robert. Thank you, Robert!

Drew Tomsak
Drew Tomsak was nominated for his efforts in acquiring, transporting, and assisting in the emergency CO2 orders for Houston. Drew has been hugely important in our ability to acquire excess inventory CO2 cylinders at bargain prices, which we repurpose in new markets for amazing results. No stranger to this award himself, Drew again shows how making the extra effort to win new business sets up RBO for success! Thank you, Drew!

Ray Vasquez
Ray Vasquez came in one morning at 3 AM to receive a truckload of CO2 for a new customer in Houston, Live Nation. Ray stayed late multiple nights to unload the hot shot of cylinders for this customer to execute a timely delivery.

Robert Webb
Robert was nominated for consistently going above and beyond for our salespeople. Tyler Daniel nominated him from the Benton store for always being responsive and eager to help. Tyler said Robert always answers—even before he is at work—and is diligent in helping solve problems that aren’t even part of his normal job duties. With a commendable work ethic and attitude, Robert takes pride in making life easier for the salespeople and his fellow employees. Thank you, Robert, for exemplifying what it means to show great Teamwork!

Garrett Westerfield
Garrett Westerfield was also an instrumental guy in the Holly Frontier installation in Kansas. As Alex stated in the email earlier this week, this job had many obstacles that had to be overcome, and Garrett was there every step of the way to be a part of the success of the installation.

Robert Whatley
Robert Whatley was nominated for multiple acts of going above and beyond. He stayed until 10 PM on a Friday, filling Hydrogen tube trailers for emergency orders for some of our largest customers. He then worked from 9 PM Saturday until 2 AM Sunday, filling Medical E cylinders again for an emergency order. Later, he was nominated for help with a rush CO2 cylinder order for Houston, which led to a new relationship with a great account! Robert is in the WWTW Hall of Fame already, and it’s awesome to see him lead by example every day. Thank you, Robert!
