A Texas company is hiring people in the Canton area for its Utica Shale-related business.
McClinton Energy Group is holding a three-day jobs fair and seeks to initially hire 20 to 25 people for various positions. The East Odessa, Texas, company provides wellhead equipment and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, equipment.
The jobs fair runs 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. today through Wednesday, Feb. 29,  at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites, 5335 Broadmoor Circle NW, Plain Township.
Most of the initial hires are for field and shop technicians, said Travis Emfinger of SWECO Wellhead, a McClinton Energy Group company. Some jobs are entry level. The company intends to hire 75 to 100 people three to six months from now.
People are asked to bring a resume. They can also fill out job applications at the fair.
Candidates ideally will be mechanically inclined with a background in such areas as construction or machine shops, Emfinger said.
For additional information, e-mail or call 304-641-6399.
