Renoir L. Knox    



In 1999 Lamarcus Knox set out to create a company incorporating the skills and relationships that he had garnered during his 14 year tenure working in the petroleum industry. As a result he founded Apogee, which was grounded in the principle to provide customers with the apex of service and quality! The company’s beginning started with the purchasing of bulk fuel to supply local trade contractors and other heavy equipment users. This model eventually leads to supplying products to larger vessel companies, transportation fleets and into other market segments.       

In his role as Apogee’s managing executive, Mr. Knox serves as resident expert for the petroleum business and project executive for all construction projects.  His leadership and managerial experience has been instrumental in Apogee’s ability to successfully complete diverse projects throughout the southwestern region of the country.  From providing bunker fuel to numerous vessels operating out of Corpus Christi and self-performing structural concrete for waste water treatment-plants.

As a result of Mr. Knox’s knowledge and leadership, Apogee is a vibrant and growing concern ready for all challenges that wait.  The company has grown from being a gas and diesel distributor to offering a full line of petroleum products to its customers. Transitioning from a trade-specific contractor into a full-service general contractor with numerous self-performing capabilities; simply stated, Apogee stands ready to be an integral part of your team’s ultimate success.
