In 2009, Steven Laws had been working in Whiting, Indiana—away from home—for approximately one year. It was then a friend of Laws called and asked if he was interested in working for a terminal company.

“I wanted to get back home and had never worked in a terminal, so I saw it a new opportunity and started working for Intercontinental Terminals Company (ITC) in 2009,” said Laws, who is still with the company today in in Deer Park, Texas as a Safety Specialist II.

For Laws, the best part of his job is getting the opportunity to work with a great team.

“ITC has allowed me to grow as an employee and afforded me opportunity to grow in my personal life as well,” Laws said, offering advice to those just starting out in the industry. “Look, learn and listen; be a sponge absorbing all the information you can. Also, if your new to the liquid terminal business, utilize your resources (veteran employees, policies and procedures, etc.)”
