Victory Project

By | blog | No Comments

The Victory Project specializes in mentoring court-involved, disadvantaged young men in Montgomery Country. Their mission is to empower young men to discover the life God intended by mastering self-awareness, self-sufficiency, and selfless service, building an uncommon alliance with uncommon youth for uncommon results. Since 2007, they have sought to undo the isolating experiences of poverty and fatherlessness in young men’s lives and expose them to the potential of a positive socioeconomic standing through their 3 E emphases: education, entrepreneurship, and enlightenment. Also since 2009, VP has remained open six days a week, Monday through Saturday, year-round, only closing on Christmas Day. Their philosophy Is “the streets never close so VP should be the alternative.”

VP also has created a micro business called Victory Improvement Projects, which provides the young men with the knowledge to not only learn the value of labor but to also help manage this unique and growing business. The young men must attend all weekly activities and tasks to be able to qualify for work at the end of every week.

There are many ways to pay it forward to children who can be impacted, be it through tutoring or donations or providing meals. MSD is very eager to continue supporting and volunteering at this great organization, currently we are preparing meals quarterly for all of the young men and the workers/volunteers at the facility. While there, we were able to see what their day to day lifestyles are at VP, and how grateful each and every student is to have volunteers take time out of their daily lives to help make an impact in theirs.

MSD FABRICATION A DIFFERENCE MAKER

By | blog

At MSD, we create 3D models in our (VDC) Virtual Design Construction Department of our systems using real world materials & equipment from manufacturers’ own libraries. Following coordination sign off we proceed with creating individual DETAIL spool drawings broken down by system type and area in accordance with the project schedules for accelerated fabrication assembly.

Our Fabrication efforts allow our team to expedite onsite delivery by assembling components in a controlled environment. Every component delivered directly to our Fabrication Shop is verified through our in-house Quality Control Program assuring the correct parts have been received prior to proceeding with Fabrication. Utilizing our in-house pre-fabrication team increases the product quality as well as the QUANTITY produced, accelerating the overall timeframes associated with individual field activities. Our team offers many different fabrication options but one specific area is accelerating schedule, improving quality reducing costs in a safe working manner with producing Equipment Skids.

Equipment Skids

Excitement is in the Air in the TEAM MSD Fabrication Shop! TEAM MSD Focus is in the DETAILS! Equipment skids is one of our primary focus points. Our MSD Fabrication Shop has successful completed a variety of Equipment Skid Packages consisting of the following:
