Danos has named a local man as the General Manager of its new service line.
The company recently launched intelligent integrated materials solutions (i2ms), which is a cutting-edge technology-based service offering that utilizes people, processes and technology to provide warehousing logistics and inventory management.
Scott Theriot, a South Lafourche High School and Nicholls graduate, will serve as general manager of supply chain services and will lead the 20-plus member i2ms team.
“Danos has long been a trusted partner in the energy industry, and we have hundreds of employees partnering with customers at shorebases and materials warehouses across the U.S.,” said Owner Eric Danos. “i2ms, is a merger of our 74 years of experience supporting customers and the latest supply chain technology, and we’re excited to be able to offer this new service to our customers.”
To launch this new service line, Danos worked with a team of technology experts. They created i2ms's customizable data platform that optimizes materials management operations regarding inventory, warehouse and logistics.
Theriot said this will be extremely beneficial to customers.
“Customers are already seeing cost savings of 10-30%, depending on the scale of implementation,” said Theriot. “Our service is founded on the understanding that accurate, visible and up-to-date information is the key to greater efficiency, particularly as it relates to materials management.”
Theriot has been with Danos for close to 20 years. He began his career in Danos' fabrication shop in 2003. He has since served several positions, including personnel coordinator, account manager and most-recently, deepwater operations manager.
“Scott has a proven track-record of leadership in managing inventory and supply chain for our customers,” said Danos. “As general manager he is helping Danos evolve in materials management, keeping us at the forefront of providers for our customers.”
Theriot holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Nicholls State University and a Master of Science in Supply Chain Management from Florida Institute of Technology. He and his wife Erica have two children and live in Cut Off, Louisiana.
