Vertex Resource Group is starting a new power division at its facility in Blackfoot.

Vertex will start manufacturing business operations at their 28,000 square foot facility in the new year. It will specialize in electrical switchgear, motor control centres, engineered electrical houses and integrated engineering systems. 

“We welcome the new management and staff to Vertex and look forward to working with them to introduce this exciting new product line and exemplary service support to our customers in Lloydminster and across North America,” says CEO and President Terry Stephenson.

Vertex says it will provide 20 to 25 new full-time jobs and is hiring in its power division. People interested can e-mail their resumes to their HR department.

The company has been operating in the Lloydminster region since 1976 and is hoping to have the operation up and running by the end of January.
