Gulf Coast Western Both a Business and a Community Leader
Though Gulf Coast Western has gradually grown over its near 50-year existence, the firm still sets aside time for both its employees and toward local communities.
This company, which first began in Dallas back in 1970, officially serves as a developer of oil and gas reserves in the central part of the U.S. Gulf Coast Western has such reserves in five states (Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Louisiana, and Mississippi)and works with many partners in various joint ventures in the oil and gas industry. Thus, the firm works with many investors to help build their business while still providing a good financial return for their partners.
In terms of business practices, Gulf Coast Western works to ensure that their joint venture partners also can learn about the oil and gas industry. They also have strong guidelines to help ensure that the acquire areas that can yield good production.
Though many still regard it as a family business, that serves to make Gulf Coast Western popular among its employees and the communities where the firm is active in. This includes giving its employees days off to spend with families that don’t go against vacation time as well as attempting to promote from within.
Gulf Coast Western also has a number of charities and social organizations the firm helps support. Some are more notable such as the American Cancer Society and the Shriners Hospital for Children. But, also among the list of organizations the company supports is The Family Place, a group which attempts to stop violence within families, the Smile Train, which helps provide dental care to children, the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, and the North Texas Food Bank.
As it approaches its 50th anniversary, Gulf Coast Western is looking to continue the smart business practices and positive community relationships that has served the company for so long.
