Schottel Opens New Facility in East Houma


Schottel, Inc., a global leader in propulsion systems, held the Grand Opening of their new facility on Denley Road in East Houma today.  Their new location at 1741 Denley Road in East Houma is part of Walter Land Company’s Denley-Grand Caillou Commercial/Industrial Subdivision.  This puts them in the heart of Houma’s marine fabrication hub near such companies like Edison Chouest’s LA Ship, Gulf Island Fabrication, Thomassie Boat Builders, the Port of Terrebonne, as well as dozens of other oilfield service companies.

The ceremony was attended by Parish President Michel Claudet, company leaders, as well as many of the Schottel’s owners who came in from Germany for the celebration.  The facility houses the regional corporate offices for Schottel and also features a training room and  shop with overhead crane capacity of 60 tons.
