Legacy Measurement to Host Job Fair Friday, Hiring 150

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Legacy Measurement Solutions Inc. will host a job fair for its new Brookfield plant and surrounding areas Friday at the Magnuson Grand hotel, 9510 E. Market St., Warren. The event will take place from 2 p.m. to  6.

Legacy, a Texas company formerly known as J-W Measurement Co., announced in November it would open a manufacturing plant here to service its current and potential customer base in the Marcellus and Utica shale oil and gas plays. The company is seeking welders, assemblers, painters and material handlers.

The company has said that it plans to create 150 jobs and begin operations this year in a 73,000-square-foot building (READ STORY).

Last year the Ohio Tax Credit Authority authorized a 55%, seven-year job-creation tax credit for the project. The company expects to generate $6.8 million in annual payroll at the project site within three years of its tax-credit effective date.

Legacy manufactures measurement equipment for gas and liquid hydrocarbons, and employs more than 450 employees in 14 states and 23 sales offices nationwide. This summer it was spun off from J-W Energy Co. when it was sold to White Deer Energy L.P. II and its affiliates and J-W Measurement Co.'s senior management team.
