Meridian, Mississippi-based Progressive Pipeline has formally rebranded as Castle.
Mike Castle Jr., president and CEO of the pipeline construction and maintenance company, announced the change during a public groundbreaking ceremony of Castle’s new downtown Meridian headquarters in March.
“This is an exciting, new day in the rich history of this company, and it ushers in a bright future for our employee family,” said Castle in an April 7 company statement. “But while our brand has changed, our commitment to being a team grounded in our values of hard work, integrity, safety, and family have not. We are a company powered by our people and we will continue to deliver to our client’s the satisfaction they’ve come to expect when partnering with us for project needs. We decided to make this change to our brand to better serve our clients. We do so much more than pipeline work when it comes to the Oil and Gas industry and we want to be transparent about the services we offer as we continue to deliver on our promise of being the hardest working team you can find.”
Castle was founded in 1999 by Mike Castle Sr., under the name Progressive Pipeline. Since its inception, they have completed over 700 projects valuing over $3 billion in every U.S. geographical area.
“Our decision to rebrand as Castle was made to better reflect who we are, a family of hardworking individuals that learn, adapt and push forward through each and every challenge,” Castle said. “We are ultimately more of a family than a company, committed to my father’s original principles of telling the truth, working hard, believing in yourself and practicing what you preach. And of course, always outworking the competition.”
Castle’s new headquarters was announced in late 2019 and represents a $10 million investment in the former Melton Hardware Building in historical downtown Meridian.
“While we outgrew our former headquarters and needed a more spacious home, we also wanted to ensure we and our entire employee base became more integrated into our local community. We’re excited to be able to contribute to the revitalization of historic downtown. We want to continue to invest into the lives of the people who are so vital to our success and future,” Castle said. “Our experience, our people, and our culture set us apart from others in the industry, and we feel we can bring great value to our community and to those we serve in this new location.”
