Natural formations create bigger business for construction companies
August 08, 2012
West Virginian organizations have been seeing much better construction figures thanks to a formation called the Marcellus shale deposit in the Appalachian Mountains, according to the Associated General Contractors of America. These rock forms make natural gas and quarry-drilling endeavors more plentiful and produce more money than companies in the area have seen recently. WTRF News reported that contracting jobs, as well as employment, had increased across the board for those involved in these markets.
The West Virginia Gazette pointed out that the area is seeing far better trends than the rest of the nation, as are similar organizations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York, and wherever else the shale deposit touches. The average increase, the source reported, was 8 percent, well above the national average.
