Oklahoma company brings jobs to Struthers

Posted: Updated:

STRUTHERS, Ohio - About a dozen local people have been hired at Industrial Piping Specialists, a company that's opened a new warehouse in Struthers.

The Oklahoma-based business expects to add up to 45 more employees in the coming months.

IPS distributes carbon and stainless pipes, flanges and fittings to companies serving the oil and gas industry.

"Oil and gas industry as a whole is kind of a rollercoaster. It is up and down. But it is favorable right now. All of the producers seem to feel that we are in a good market and we are here to support them," said Ty Westfield, President of IPS.

The company's president says IPS has been a customer of Youngtown's Vallourec for more than 20 years and will continue to work with local manufacturers.
