YOUNGSTOWN - The ribbon will be cut next week on a newly constructed oil and natural gas equipment fabrication facility on Salt Springs Road.
The grand opening for Houston-based Exterran is set for Tuesday morning and will include local and state officials, the company announced.
Exterran's 65,000-square-foot production equipment fabrication plant has been under construction since last year. It is dedicated to the fabrication of production equipment used to treat or otherwise process natural gas and oil after it is extracted from the ground such as separation, dehydration, natural gas conditioning, oil treating and conditioning, filtration and air emissions control.
The new plant is expected to employ about 80 workers. Exterran has approximately 10,000 employees worldwide and operates in approximately 30 countries.
