Local shrimp delivered fresh from the Gulf.
Vermeer Texas-Louisiana, a market leader in environmental and underground construction equipment with 11 locations across Texas and southern Louisiana hosted their 6th annual shrimp boil on Friday, September 7th at the Corpus Christi branch location.
Approximately 100 customers turned out for the annual event, which included all-you-can eat jumbo shrimp, prize drawings, and the latest in Vermeer trenching, boring and tree care equipment. Representatives from Digital Control Inc. (DCI), Vactron Equipment, McLaughlin and Baroid Drilling Fluids were on hand to support product demonstrations and answer customer questions.
Vermeer Texas-Louisiana opened the Corpus Christi location in 2006 to support customers in the coastal region including the areas of Victoria, Beeville and Kingsville. The store employs full time sales, parts and service personnel and has a large on-hand supply of equipment and parts.
"We were happy to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to our customers and the community, and look forward to continuing to build relationships in the Corpus area," said Glenn Boot, Branch Manager.
