We were proud to gather together with labor and local leaders to highlight the benefits of our recently announced Project Labor Agreement with the Philadelphia Building Trades for upcoming construction at the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex (MHIC). This initial $200 million investment in new projects in Delaware County will employ as many as 1,200 trade workers over the next two years at MHIC.

While we’re excited to share this great news, read more about what this work will mean to the men and women of the building trades in the region.

“I can tell you without a doubt that what’s happened here at Marcus Hook over the last few years, and what’s happening at Marcus Hook today, is truly transformational,” said Jim Snell, Business Manager for Steamfitters Local 420. “These projects are not just pipelines and processing facilities; they are a lifeline to family-supporting jobs for our members.”

“The membership of IBEW 654 is excited to be part of this project with Energy Transfer Partners,” said William Adams, IBEW Local 654 President/Business Agent.

“This region has had its ups and downs. However, in recent years, we have seen a tremendous upswing. And one of the biggest reasons for that upswing is the revitalization of the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex,” said James Harper, Business Manager for Laborers Local 413.
