Charlotte has done it again!
At the Charlotte Chamber’s Annual Meeting last night, Shaw Power Group CEO, Clarence Ray, announced a major increase in the company’s presence right here in Charlotte.
Starting immediately, Shaw will begin hiring 225 new employees, primarily for engineering jobs, with the average salary beginning at $95,000. This move is directly related to the parent company’s strategic partnership with Toshiba, which was announced yesterday.
Shaw will be the exclusive engineering, procurement and construction contractor worldwide — outside of Japan and Vietnam — for Toshiba’s Advanced Boiling Water Reactor.
Given the current unemployment level of 9.8% in the area, this news is most welcome! It’s not just a welcome boost to our economy, but also an important step toward Charlotte's goal of becoming an energy hub.
According to Mr. Ray, Shaw is “very excited about the opportunity to increase the size of our staff here in what has become our nation’s New Energy Capital.”
Well, needless to say, we here at Agent Becky are excited!! We welcome the opportunity to work with any and all newcomers relocating to Charlotte from around the country.
So, come on down (or up) to Charlotte! We will certainly find you a Charlotte home that suits you and your family's needs perfectly! It's also important to point out that we work with all relocation companies nationwide!!
You're gonna LOVE Charlotte!
