SBA Administrator Tours Houston’s Tejas Tubular Following Hurricane Harvey

On Oct. 11, SHALE attended a tour of Tejas Tubular Products Inc. (of Houston) hosted by Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton. The event included a special visit from Linda McMahon, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Attendees were shown the damage to the facility sustained during Hurricane Harvey. The event was intended to showcase how the SBA assists small-business owners like Maximo Tejeda, founder of Tejas Tubular. The owner says he’s very appreciative of the SBA’s assistance programs, as his business lost revenue when operations were down and his facility still needs many repairs. In the aftermath of the storm, and in conjunction with the energy industry downturn, Tejeda says the only thing he can do is “keep fighting.”
