FMTC Safety Continues Expansion with On-Site Training & Instruction Acquisition

HOUMA, La. -- FMTC Safety is continuing its global expansion in the Offshore, Wind, Maritime, and Industry sectors by acquiring Houma-based On-Site Training & Instruction. With this acquisition, the Houma location now offers certified OPITO training, a safety training for Oil, Gas, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) workers. Later this year, the company will obtain the certified STCW accreditation and offer various STCW training courses, safety training for seafarers which will make FMTC Safety the first and only one-stop-shop for workplace safety courses in the USA.

Besides Houma, FMTC has five locations in The Netherlands, one in Dunkirk, France, and one in Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia. FMTC offers compliant training according to domestic and international accrediting standards such as GWO, STCW, OSHA, OPITO, and customized training for all sectors.

International certification, same family business:

The acquisition of On-Site Training & Instruction by FMTC Safety originates from a solid 3-year partnership between the two companies. The partnership in Houma was FMTC's first international experience and turned FMTC from a national Dutch company into a global company. Acquiring the Houma location is seen as the start of expanding further in the USA.

By combining the strengths of both companies, the Houma location is now able to offer training in accordance with the OSHA standards, and the newest international standards. In addition, the facilities have been improved, and courses can now be booked online at any given moment the client prefers. In addition, FMTC guarantees that courses always take place, even with just one trainee. Besides these modernizations of the Houma-based company, the course additions, and the new name, the company is still run by the same trusted employees.

Kaylab Verdin, Center Manager FMTC Houma: "We are delighted that FMTC decided to invest in our company in Houma. FMTC understands our unique company culture. We now work under the FMTC banner, but we are still the same devoted family business. And even though Winona 'Bebe' Mahler McElroy, the founder of On-Site, has now retired, her son Alfred Fox is still as involved as always as we continue to help our clients to the safest work environments with our dedicated team."

First woman founder and CEO:

Winona "Bebe" Mahler McElroy founded On-Site in 1989. She was the first woman founder and CEO in the male-dominated safety industry. Breaking through tradition and stereotypes, Winona McElroy became the first woman firefighter in Houma. She was known for taking every possible safety training she could, which eventually led to her being asked to teach a Hazmat training, a course for dealing with dangerous substances. Soon many other companies caught on and asked her to be their safety instructor as well.

"At that time, I was driving around Houma with a 10 lb. extinguisher in my jeep and I was getting paid by teaching hundreds of men working with hazardous material. As a woman, when I proactively started offering safety courses to companies, many thought I was just a sales representative. They were all amazed that I was the one teaching the courses and it was my company. This is how I got started and founded On-Site Training & Instruction in the late eighties. I am happy that On-Site is in such good hands with FMTC and they continue to bring safety to the workplace!"

About FMTC Safety:

FMTC Safety is the safety training center for Offshore training, Wind training, Maritime training, and Industry training offering certified training according to international standards. The company's goal is to smartly and sustainably enhance safety in the workplace with respect for people, the planet, and the environment. FMTC's unique selling point is its client-based approach. The client always decides when they want to train and where the training will take place. At this moment, FMTC has 9 training locations around the world. Two locations are in The Netherlands, one in Dunkirk, France, one in Houma, Louisiana, USA, and one in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

New Online Bookstore Creates Marketplace for Self-Published Authors Struggling to Compete on Amazon

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- The self-publishing book industry's exponential growth has taken the world by storm. Opening doors once closed to unknown writers, self-publishing creates an alternative - some may say disruptive - option for writers with a small fan base to share their work and build brand awareness on a global scale. Empowered by the popular do-it-yourself movement, a new direct-to-customer bookselling platform, Direct2Author.com, launched in December.

Aimed at helping self-published authors committed to creating, distributing, and promoting their work, Direct2Author is a low-cost, targeted complement to promoting books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online bookstores.

"Direct2Author is our response to large book distributors like Amazon, who sells more books than any other single retail outlet in history and has over 30 million titles in its online bookstore," said Michelle Jackson, self-published author and founder of the platform. "Our goal is to pull self-published books out of the highly trafficked traditional book marketing lane and steer them to a place they can call 'home.' We believe this platform will make it easier for dedicated readers to find new works by diverse writers."

Direct2Author stakes its bet on book lovers interested in supporting a niche market. But the platform goes a step further by addressing an issue that often plagues writers who aren't traditionally published. By allowing authors to earn a "Reader Approved" badge from a team of editors and beta readers, the platform helps validate self-published works' readability, appeal, and writing style.

"Too often, readers believe that self-published books are poorly written,' said Jackson. "But the success of traditionally published authors who were once self-published like Margaret Atwood, EL James, and even Stephen King who self-published a collection of short stories in 1960, prove that our work is valuable and critical to the publishing industry's growth."

Direct2Author provides a free basic book profile upload and three subscription-based dynamic profiles. Dynamic profiles include direct links to the author's websites and author pages, book cover and book description uploads, promo video integration, social media links, and digital media promotion. Subscriptions start at $3.99 a month.

Readers can sign-up and receive free access to the online bookstore and the 5-crown book rating system. They can also earn free merchandise and weekly book feature promotions. Learn more: https://www.direct2author.com/avid-reader-subscribe-page.

Unlike Amazon, Direct2Author is not a fulfillment service. Instead, the platform aims to tap into direct-to-customer bookselling. As self-published authors build their own websites on platforms like WiX, WordPress, and Squarespace and create author brand awareness on social media using popular hashtags like #booktok, #bookstagram, and #booktwt, readers can purchase directly from the author, pay less in distribution fees, and help them build long-term fan-bases.

"Self-published authors are entrepreneurs," said Jackson. "Technology allows us to establish dynamic branding and marketing tools that we can control. As a result, we now have the power to touch a global community of book lovers."

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges.

"Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."

Sunpro Solar Named Second Largest Residential Contractor in the US

MANDEVILLE, La. -- Solar Power World has recognized Sunpro Solar's installation success by ranking the company at No. 2 for residential solar contractors in the U.S. This is the sixth consecutive year Sunpro Solar has made the Top Solar Contractors List, climbing three spots since last year.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of the top 500 solar installers in the United States. Solar companies in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service, markets and states.

Sunpro Solar installed an impressive 94,959 kilowatts of solar power in 2020. Since 2008, Sunpro Solar has brought affordable electricity options and energy independence to homeowners across the nation. They have installed more than 189 total megawatts of solar energy for more than 25,000 satisfied customers since its founding.

"It's humbling to see how much Sunpro Solar has grown from its beginnings in Louisiana to now providing clean, solar energy to tens of thousands of families across the nation," said Marc Jones, Sunpro Solar's Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Our continued growth and success are without question attributed to the passionate and dedicated employees and operations teams that work tirelessly to deliver excellent experiences to our customers. As we grow, our commitment to making a difference in the communities we serve remains our focus."

In 2020, Sunpro Solar's strong growth continued as they expanded into six additional states -- North Carolina, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Arizona, and Virginia, bringing their total to 20 states. Sunpro Solar also received additional honors in 2020 such as making the list of Inc 5000's Fastest-Growing Businesses and Vet 100 lists.

"The Solar Power World team is so glad to recognize over 400 companies on the 2021 Top Solar Contractors list that not only survived a pandemic but thrived in spite of it."

Northshore Solar Company Rewards Top Sales Employees with Mercedes-Benz Cars

MANDEVILLE, La. -- Sunpro Solar hosted its annual President's Club awards ceremony on February 5, celebrating the company's achievements in 2020 and awarding top sales employees with brand new Mercedes-Benz cars. The President's Club Awards recognize top sales consultants who have achieved the highest sales during the past 12 months and who have aligned themselves with the company's values and mission.

For the second year, Sunpro Solar partnered with Mercedes-Benz of Covington to purchase the AMG GLE-53 SUVs and CLA-250 Sedans for the recipients. Award recipients also received all-expenses paid trips to the Caribbean.

"It truly was a memorable and exhilarating experience celebrating the Sunpro Solar team's success," said Laurie McCants, Operating Partner at the Covington Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Slidell native, and Founder and CEO Marc Jones, started Sunpro Solar with a vision to establish a company built on integrity, exceptional customer service and a commitment to making a difference in communities. Originally founded in Louisiana, Sunpro Solar has expanded to 18 states under his leadership and is the fifth largest residential solar company in the U.S. In 2019, Marc was named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
