Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A world leader in oil and gas processing is partnering with a Youngstown company to make oil and gas production equipment.

The Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce helped develop a relationship between Valerus, headquartered in Houston, Texas, and Brilex Industries of Youngstown.

Sarah Boyarko, Vice President of Economic Business Retention and Expansion for the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber, says jobs related to the oil and gas industry will be growing in our region.

"We are going to see a lot more opportunities in the Valley. We have a nice handful of projects. Right now we are managing 28 active projects, meaning the likelihood is great they will come here or expand here in the next 12 to 15 months," Boyarko said.

Brilex President Brian Benyo tells 21 News that 30 jobs will be created. Interested applicants can apply through the company's website brilex.com.

The jobs are full time and require knowledge of skilled trades.

Benyo says there will be some training opportunities for employees with a solid work history.
