Levingston Reorganized— Barrios, Covington And Wise To Head Three Units
Levingston Shipbuilding Company officials have announced that a new corporate organization, Levingston Industries, Inc., has been formed and will be headquartered in Orange, Texas. The formation of three wholly owned subsidiaries of Levingston Industries was also announced. They are: Levingston Shipbuilding Company, h e a d q u a r t e r e d in Orange; Texas Gulfport Shipbuilding Company, headquartered in Port Arthur; and Levingston Marine Corporation, headquartered in Annapolis, Md.
Joe Barrios was named president of Levingston Shipbuilding, Don Covington president of Texas Gulfport Shipbuilding, and Joe Wise president of Levingston Marine.
Each has made a major contribution to Levingston's continued successful growth.
Ed Paden, president and chief executive officer of the parent company, announced the change as part of an overall restructuring designed to keep the operating units small enough so that the individual worker can retain his sense of identity and personal value in the company.
Mr. Barrios, appointed president of Levingston Shipbuilding, is a 32-year veteran of Levingston.
He joined Levingston in 1948 and over the years worked in virtually all of the departments of the yard as timekeeper, estimator, buyer, cost accountant, controller, manager of planning and estimating, vice presidentcontract administration, vice president of Commercial Ships Division, and currently as vice president of shipyard operations.
Levingston Marine, headed by Mr. Wise, will be dedicated to the provision of all types of engineering services to both commercial, offshore, and naval shipbuilding activities.
Mr. Covington has been vice president of the Marine Products Division of Levingston for the past year and a half. The Texas G u l f p o r t Shipbuilding Company that he now heads consists of three entities including Texas Gulfport located in Port Arthur, the Industrial Products Division at Woodville, Texas, and the Levingston Armadillo Plant at Tyler, Texas.
