Type of Project: Citgo Refinery Turnaround Project
Structural Group recently completed a huge turnaround at the Citgo refinery in Lemont, Illinois. They called on McCann to deliver the materials needed to complete the job on time and within budget.
“Our crew of over 200 people worked 24 hours a day to repair a sponge cooker unit where gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and hydrocarbon solvents are manufactured,” says resource manager Mike Szot. “We also strengthened over 900 square feet of support columns and replaced four concrete decks.”
The Structural Group has been purchasing parts and construction supplies from McCann for over 8 years. Szot says that’s because McCann is always willing to go the extra mile to keep him happy.
“We relied on McCann to bring us the all of the rebar for the Citgo job. During the project, there was a design change, and we needed to find some rebar angles. I called McCann up at 11:00 and told them what I needed. By 4:00 that afternoon, we had everything we asked for back at the jobsite. They go out of their way to make sure we get what we need on every project. They really know their stuff. Even if I’m not working directly with my rep, everyone there is really well trained. If they don’t have the solution you’re looking for, they’ll keep making suggestions until you find something that works.”
