We feel especially confident in the growth and stability in the maritime and plant construction sectors and anticipate our move to Lafayette to be an important next step in the growth of our company.
Lafayette, La (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
The Jacksonville, Florida- based skilled labor contractor, Ameri-Force, today announced the opening of its Lafayette, Louisiana operations commencing Monday, March 2, 2015. The move will mark the company’s deepening commitment to the Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico markets based on long-term projections of growth in both the manufacturing and maritime industries in the region.
According to Ameri-Force Chief Executive Officer, Dave Enman, “We are entering the Acadiana market at a time when we are fully aware that the drop in the price of oil has created concerns, and even some pullbacks in some sectors. Yet we remain confident that now is the time for us to expand our Louisiana footprint and have confidence in what the future holds for our company and for workforce growth in Louisiana. We feel especially confident in the growth and stability in the maritime and plant construction sectors and anticipate our move to Lafayette to be an important next step in the growth of our company.”
Ameri-Force’s strategy is affirmed by recent comments by the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association that suggest that some sectors may benefit from the downturn in oil prices as may be the case with $100 billion in new petrochemical and manufacturing commitments in Louisiana due to the availability and price of natural gas, a primary feedstock to the petrochemical industry.
