Testimonials

“In a recent meeting, Matrix was the subject of several favorable comments and praise for the quality and value of Matrix’s performance and the role they have played in past projects, are playing in current projects and will likely play in future projects. These comments included ‘quality, product and workmanship,’ ‘responsiveness and customer service,’ ‘timely,’ and ‘just flat out good people.'”

“I recently had the pleasure to coordinate three projects with Matrix in our Shell Puget Sound Refinery in Anacortes, WA. All three were challenging jobs within live operating units of the refinery. Matrix demonstrated consistently their ability to meet deadlines, staffing needs and most importantly, do the work safely without any major incidents or injuries.”

“To go from zero engineering and no land to a completed plant in less than 24 months is pretty impressive… It shows what you can do with a focused team and dedicated partner like Matrix.”

Michael Hosford
Senior Vice President
Ferus Natural Gas Fuels

“In a typical turnaround, pre-work and planning is done before the contractors are engaged, and that can cause complete communication breakdown. In this case, having Kim Henry, Jackie Golden, Shane Skiles and the whole Matrix team on-site and engaged from the start made all the difference.”

Shell Deer Park Refinery

“Because of Matrix’s expertise, we were also able to make design changes that prevented issues that could have negatively impacted the project and resulted in significant cost increases.”

“There has to be a high degree of ownership by everyone involved, because when challenges arise – and they will – it’s the quality of your team that will make or break the event.”

“[Matrix Service] looks for what’s best for BP even if it means giving up work. We’ve taken work to Matrix where they’ve recommended and then helped find an alternate contractor or offered alternative ideas if they think there’s a better way.”

Brian Barclay
Maintenance and Reliability Manager
BP Cherry Point Refinery

“We discovered significant issues early on that required a tremendous amount of work to be done within a very tight time frame. That meant constructing at the same time as we were engineering which is always difficult, but Matrix was very flexible, consistently offered up solutions and managed the work under extremely difficult circumstances. We’re very happy with the quality of the work and the speed at which it was done.”

“We didn’t hire Matrix to just do tactical work. We invited them in to help us with our business.”

BP Cherry Point Refinery

“[Matrix Service] isn’t afraid to put challenge back into the conversation, especially if it’s about making sure a decision is the best one for BP. That’s partnership. And in my experience having managed thousands of contracts, it’s a powerful approach you don’t see often.”
