January 20th, 2014 Comments off

Taking over a one-time manufactured housing plant in Johnstown, Colorado, PTI Group has converted the 113,000 square-foot facility to constructing modular workforce housing for the oil, gas and mining industries in Canada. Based in Alberta, Canada, PTI scouted 78 cities before choosing the Denver area because of the availability of skilled and technical labor that lost their jobs during the recession. As informs, although their original intention was to hire 250 workers within five years, they already employ 353 after 18 months. An affiliate of Oil States International, PTI is planning a 5,000 worker facility for the $13 billion SunCor Fort Hills Project, and workforce accommodations for 2,000 at the Kitimat Liquified Natural Gas plant in British Columbia. Among other projects, PTI provided housing for the Vancouver Olympics.

From ReporterHerald in north central Colorado learns the former site of modular home manufacturer Barvista Homes is the new home of PTI Group USA. Taking over a 103,000 square foot building, this producer of modular workforce accommodations for oil field workers is out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but is a subsidiary of Houston-based Oil States International. Oil States CEO and president Cindy Taylor says the company has a market capitalization of $4 billion, noting the modular accommodations sector accounts for half of the company’s earnings. Although it can provide completely furnished multistory housing units for up to 5,000 in remote locations, this new facility at Johnstown will be manufacturing modular two-bedroom two-bath structures, a duplex with two one-bedroom units, and command centers. The current workforce of 50 is expected to grow to 250 in five years.
