Our names are Fonda Lindfors New, CEO and Kenny New, President. QRI was started in 1986, born from a love of cleaning up the oilfield legacy sites in coastal Louisiana. Since that time, 25 years ago, QRI has grown through acquisition and the pure hard work and dedication of a staff that believes: "We Do That!"

When you look at QRI and all the diverse services we provide within our Divisions you may ask yourself, "How can they do all of that cohesively?" Initially, QRI's clientele was the oilfield in coastal Louisiana. At that time we provided Consulting and Drilling services, but when you are at a gathering station in the middle of the Atchafalaya Swamp, you have to have everything you need to service the client. Over time our clients would request various additional services such as remediating oil spills, demolition and disposal of old facilities, etc. The talents necessary to complete such a wide suite of work included everything from craftsman with environmental backgrounds to welders, electricians and plumbers. As a result, QRI's capabilities grew. Then, Katrina / Rita hit and turned our coastal Louisiana business upside down.

In 2004, QRI obtained its 8(a) status as a Woman-Owned Business in order to pursue federal opportunities with all of the skill sets obtained over the years. Pre-Katrina, we began marketing our services and our recently obtained federal status to larger consultant companies in Houston. One of those companies realized our capabilities within 3 days after Katrina hit, resulting in fifty-four (54) QRI employees serving for eighteen (18) months and providing 16% of the Hurricanes Katrina and Rita Incident Command Structure for the USEPA Region 6 START. Today, QRI works side by side with many of those same federal agencies such as the USACE, USAF, USCG, USGS, US Navy, FEMA, GSA, and the NPS.

We are dedicated to helping rebuild Louisiana and the Gulf Coast while also supplying the services of our six divisions across the United States. QRI is eager for opportunities with new clients and looks forward to meeting the goals of our existing clients as we continue to grow and serve.
