Roofing contractor to hire 75 in Cincinnati area

Jasper Contractors Inc. CEO Brian Wedding has announced plans to commence operations in Dayton, Ohio as a satellite of the national roofing contractor's Cincinnati hub.

The company is negotiating to open a major material distribution center north of Cincinnati to supply its new construction crews.

Jasper's expansion to Dayton has created more than 75 new positions to be filled by Monday, Aug. 1.  These positions include administration, warehouse, sales representatives, roofing installers, metal fabricators and superintendents.  Pay rates vary by position and range from hourly to salary.  All Jasper employees receive 100 percent company-paid healthcare.

"In light of this current expansion, we know that Jasper needs good employees and Ohio needs good jobs," Wedding says. "As the economy slowly improves, we will have to work hard to find qualified employees, but we are confident that we can achieve our goal of hiring 75 new employees by the first of August."

Jasper's expansion into Dayton comes during a time of exponential growth for Jasper – one of the fastest-growing roofing contractors and one of the largest residential roofing companies in the nation. Since November 2010, Jasper has opened offices in two new markets and created more than 800 positions.
