Higbee And Marchiando Get New Responsibilities At National Supply Company

National Supply Company, Houston-based oilfield equipment firm, has named David A.

Higbee and John C. Marchiando to new managerial responsibilities in the National Drilling Equipment Division. Mr. Higbee is promoted to general manager-manufacturing.

He will be accountable for the company's plants in Torrance, Calif.; Gainesville, Texas; and Stockport, England, and for Baylor Industries, Houston subsidiary that manufactures electrical components for drilling rig power plants.

Mr. Marchiando, general manager-fabrication, adds responsibility for two other National subsidiaries — Par Industries, Inc.

shipyard in New Iberia, La., that specializes in offshore drilling barges and platforms and Derrick Service International, manufacturer of derricks, mast, and substructures for drilling rigs. DSI has facilities in Conroe and Tomball, Texas, and Nisku, Alberta.

Mr. Marchiando continues responsibility for the company's five machinery centers that fabricate and assemble drilling rigs.

Mr. Higbee started with National Supply's parent company, Armco, in 1965 and held positions in research and product management before joining National Supply in 1980.

He has been responsible for management of the company's Advanced Drilling Machine project, the industry's first automated, deepwell drilling rig. He will continue that responsibility.

Mr. Marchiando has been a National Supply employee since 1959, progressing through a variety of manufacturing assignments until becoming works manager of the Torrance, Calif., plant. After seven years in that assignment, he was transferred to Houston headquarters in 1979 to assume the new position of general manager-fabrication.
