supply critical equipment for
Marcellus and Utica
oil and gas production
YOUNGSTOWN, OH (June 27, 2013) – Valerus (, one of the world’s leading providers of integrated oil and gas handling and processing solutions, held a ribbon cutting yesterday with Youngstown-based Brilex Industries (, celebrating their partnership to manufacture Valerus production equipment at the Brilex facility for deployment throughout the region. Valerus and Brilex employees welcomed state and local civic leaders, business leaders and members of the media to share how their partnership will impact the Youngstown economy and help support the region’s Marcellus and Utica oil and gas industry.

Pete Lane, CEO for Valerus, shared his company’s appreciation for those who helped make the partnership a reality. “Valerus greatly appreciates the support it received from the State of Ohio, the City of Youngstown, the Youngstown and Warren Regional Chambers and the Northeast Ohio economic development team that guided us through the development process.”

Brian Benyo, president of Brilex Industries, noted, “The Brilex partnership with Valerus will benefit the local economy and bring value to the region’s rapidly growing oil and gas industry.” In addition, Benyo added that the partnership “will benefit both the city of Youngstown through job creation and the region’s unconventional gas market, which is expected to continue to grow.”

The partnership has created ten jobs since 2012 and is expected to create approximately 30 local jobs as a result of increased manufacturing at the facility. It will also provide oil and gas operators in the Utica and Marcellus shale plays with access to production equipment more quickly and at reduced transportation costs than previously possible.
