Ohio's Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor visited the Producers Service Corporation Thursday afternoon to take a tour of their Sonora Road facility and to see how their fracturing services and trucks are built.
"We're visiting eastern Ohio and we of course know how important the opportunities we have now with the shale, and Marcellus and Utica shale, the drilling opportunities that we will experience, have and will continue to experience the job creation in this particular are because of this boom," explained Taylor.
Taylor says she wanted to visit the Producers Service Corporation not just because of the shale boom, but because they're an Ohio-based, employee-owned company. As far as job creation, Taylor says the demand for oil-industry jobs is expected to grow.
"We are at the top of the first inning, if you wanted to look at where are with regard to the opportunities that we see in Ohio and opportunities coming to Ohio, so I think it's a fair statement that we are in the very early stages."
Taylor's next stop is visiting Belmont College's welding program in St. Clairesville.
