With MBDA Assistance, Client Increases Ability to Create New Jobs

Lee Jackson founded Jackson Offshore Operators LLC, a marine services company supporting the offshore oil and gas industry. Looking to expand opportunities for his enterprise, Jackson partnered with the New Orleans MBDA Business Center in April of 2012. MBDA staff provided business matchmaking and direct facilitation of services between Jackson Offshore and various decision makers with companies in the petro-chemical industry. By September of 2012, Jackson Offshore had secured a deal with Chevron to provide vessel support for offshore operations. The multiyear contract, valued in excess of $100 million, is expected to result in the creation of 120 new jobs. After a 600% growth in gross revenues since becoming an MBDA client, Jackson Offshore plans to continue to work with MBDA of New Orleans to facilitate future opportunities.
