  • Overview

    Acadian Contractors, Inc. continues to grow!

     

     ABOUT US

    Acadian Contractors is located in Abbeville, Louisiana on the Vermillion River. We opened our doors in 1973 and have grown to become one of the busiest, most in-demand, accurate and stable companies in the industry. Even so – most people have still never heard of us. Why do we remain one of the best kept secrets in oilfield construction? That’s simple… If you don’t make mistakes… you don’t make headlines.

     

    We pride ourselves on treating all of our employees with respect, rewarding those who live up to expectations and providing the safest workplace and the highest standards when it comes to tools, technology and equipment. Our team works in over 100,000 square feet of fabrication shops located on 125 acres of yard on both sides of the Vermillion River with 2 water access slips, all just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. This allows us to do big, long-term jobs with ease and accuracy.

     

    GREAT BENEFITS!

    Health Insurance – Established 401k – Cafeteria Plan – Paid Vacation – Sick Leave – Short & Long Term Disability – Safety Incentive Program

     

    SECOND TO NONE SAFETY RECORD

    Our commitment to safety is passionate and not just lip service to make a press release sound pretty…

    An example of Acadian’s safety record is the recent Chevron Safety Award for 455,000 straight work hours without an OSHA recordable incident.
