In addition, the Setex facility furthers our presence in the important Gulf Coast market.”

Kevin Sourdellia, Setex President added, “This acquisition will allow Setex to become a part of SOR’s long-term strategy for growth. The additional operational and sales resources provided by SOR will allow us to be even more responsive and better able to support our valued customers.”
