Shale Drilling Development Leads to Millwood Natural Expansion
Local supplier provides environmental solutions to customers
Vienna, Ohio, December 15 2014 -- Millwood Natural, the premiere local supplier of environmental containment products to the Marcellus and Utica shale industry, is expanding to meet the demands of the ever-growing oil and gas industry. The company hired two additional team members to better serve regions in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Ben Timmons and Amy Giovannone were hired to handle business development. In the coming year, they will work to develop stronger relationships with industry leaders. Each brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the company.
Carrie Hughes has also joined Millwood Natural’s business development team. No stranger to Millwood, Hughes was previously a member of Millwood Inc.’s regional sales team.
“My goal is to secure the confidence of the oil and gas industry that Millwood Natural will produce quality products with customer services that demonstrate integrity,” Timmonssaid. “I am excited to join the Millwood Family and develop Millwood Natural to an even larger scale.”
Millwood Natural offers several products such as crane mats, new and used pipeline skids, silt socks, straw wattles and containment stakes.
Crane mats provide temporary roadways for environmental protection and can withstand the weight of heavy machinery. Pipeline skids, new and used, help to secure equipment and loads as they are transported and stored at work sites. In order to control erosion, silt socks and straw wattles are used to filter and direct water flow and sediment deposits. Containment stakes in 24”, 28’’, 36’’, and 48” sizes hold and position erosion control products.
While the product offerings are common for the industry, Millwood Natural is positioned to provide a greater level of customer service and convenience to customers with its quick turn-around and local connections. With its recent expansion, Millwood Natural is prepared to grow with the shale industry and provide products to even more locations.
“Millwood Natural prides itself on fast turn-around for its many local customers in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions,” said Joe Pecchia, Director—Strategic Account & Technology Development. “Our central location allows our customers to save time and money with shorter lead times and inexpensive freight costs.”
Millwood Natural uses high-quality hardwoods for crane mats, pipeline skids and containment stakes to ensure a longer product life.
Standard sizes are available for purchase immediately. Millwood Natural can produce custom sized dragline mats, pipeline skids and silt socks to meet individual requirements.
