More Good News For the Construction Industry

New construction jobs data has recently been released, and the news is good for our construction and contractor friends. Construction employers have added over 16,000 jobs and construction unemployment is at its lowest rate in years, according to the Associated General Contractors of America. However, the report states that the biggest problem now is not the lack of available jobs, but rather the lack of skilled workers to fill those positions. At Blades Direct, we are happy to assist contractors, builders, construction companies, and other industry-related personnel in supplying them with the best tools, equipment and chemicals to make their jobs as efficient and resourceful as possible. As the construction industry continues its recovery, we expect to assist many more new customers in the near future.
