By Staff
CUMMING - S&S Technical, LLC has expanded and relocated its fabrication facilities in Cumming.<br /> <br /> Since its inception in 2006, S&S Technical has become a full engineering and fabrication company focusing on the transfer of fluid and gas. The company has <br /> added an additional 20 full time positions in the past two years and projects another five positionsadded by the end of 2014.<br /> <br /> "The specialization of the equipment and the markets we serve require highly skilled welders, pipefitters, mechanical and electrical engineers and design staff," notes owner, Scott Ogburn. "The company growth comes from not only the expansion of the U.S. oil and gas market but by the quality work done by all of our staff." <br /> <br /> The expansion to a 50,000 square-foot facility will allow S&S Technical to continue to meet this demand, Ogburn noted. S&S Technical relocated from a site off of Hwy 9 to its new location at 1900 Grassland Parkway. <br /> <br /> Randall Toussaint, Vice President of Economic Development for the Chamber, assisted S&S Technical with site-selection. <br /> <br /> S&S Technical celebrated its grand opening recently with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception.
