ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Third Coast Terminals, Inc. received a visit from U.S. Representative Pete Olson (R-TX) today at its Pearland, Texas headquarters. Third Coast Terminals, Inc. is a member in good standing of the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD). Rep. Olson met with company leaders and acknowledged the chemical distribution industry's vital role in the southeast Texas region and the U.S. national economy.
"Chemical distributors employ thousands of people in vital jobs to the United States' economy. They are an important part of the global supply chain operating in this region. Companies like Third Coast Terminals in Pearland operate with great care and safety through the Responsible Distribution program, and are worried about issues that can affect operations such as the fiscal climate, implementing costly healthcare mandates and tax increases. It's important to hear the concerns facing our local businesses. I'm here to listen and understand how those issues affect the people at Third Coast Terminals, and all of the constituents in the 22nd District of Texas," Olson said.
Third Coast Terminals is a specialized storage, toll processing, contract blending and drumming operation that has continually served the Gulf Coast Petrochemical Industry for fifteen years using Responsible Distribution. Responsible Distribution is NACD's mandatory environmental, health, safety and security program that has resulted in NACD members' continuous record of safer operations than non-NACD members in the entire industry. NACD members are leaders in health, safety, security, and environmental performance through implementation of Responsible Distribution, established in 1991 as a condition of membership through third-party verified management practice.
