ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio - Hull & Associates, Inc., an industry leader in project development, energy, and environmental consulting, announced the opening of a new office in St. Clairsville today during the Ohio Valley Oil & Gas Association's June luncheon at the Belmont Hills Country Club.
Hull Chief Executive Officer Craig Kasper shared the insight leading up to the strategic decision to open a St. Clairsville office with OVOGA members, local business leaders, and elected officials in attendance before introducing A.J. Smith, an engineer and project manager with Hull who will manage the new office.
"Opening an office in St. Clairsville not only positions Hull strategically to service our current and prospective clients in the shale oil and gas industry, it also gives us the ability to create and develop regional projects in our alternative energy, brownfields, environmental, and waste management markets," Kasper said.
"We were patient, listened to the needs of our clients, and studied the developing Utica Shale play in Ohio for two years before arriving at this decision. It was extremely important for us as a company to ensure that we located an office in the region that is fully capable of servicing all of our markets and clients.
"We believe we've made a sound decision in locating that office here in St. Clairsville and we're excited to be a part of this community."
The new office, which officially opens July 1, is located in the heart of downtown St. Clairsville at 146 West Main Street, Second Floor, St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950.
