Company creates oil and gas jobs in Pennsylvania
Posted on August 26, 2015
One company is busy creating oil and gas jobs in Pennsylvania.
Neptune Solutions Company, a water treatment technology company serving the oil and gas industries, will establish its new headquarters in Eighty Four, Washington County, resulting in the creation of 30 new, full-time jobs.
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Washington County Chamber of Commerce.
Neptune has signed a five-year lease for a 13,500-square-foot site to serve as its new headquarters. The company plans to invest $335,000 and has committed to the creation of 30 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.
“It is a great honor for Neptune to work with the governor’s team in helping find a green solution to recycling fracking-impaired water,” said Alex Gonzalez, president, Neptune Solutions. “With the increase in truck traffic and the growing safety concerns, our hope is that the oil and gas operators in the Marcellus will join the governor in his efforts.”
“We are very proud that Neptune has chosen to invest in Washington County. Its investment in both new jobs and capital continues to demonstrate energy’s strong economic influence on our region and Washington County’s position as an Energy Capital of the East,” said Jeff Kotula, president, Washington County Chamber of Commerce.
