Testimonials

We didn’t hire Matrix to just do tactical work. We invited them in to help us with our business.

Brian Barclay
Maintenance and reliability manager, BP Cherry Point Refinery

The scale and timeliness associated with this work required your talent and commitment to safety, quality, budget and schedule, and Matrix delivered outstanding results in this regard.

Leo Golden
Vice President, Major Projects Execution, US - Enbridge

In a typical turnaround, pre-work and planning is done before the contractors are engaged, and that can cause complete communication breakdown. In this case, having Kim Henry, Jackie Golden, Shane Skiles and the whole Matrix team on-site and engaged from the start made all the difference.
