IBEW Local 1105 is now recruiting electricians of all skill levels for $750 million data center construction project in New Albany’s International Business Park, with more big data projects on the horizon.

Ohio’s electricians are critical to the construction of Facebook’s new $750 million data center, located in the New Albany International Business Park. To meet the staffing demands of the 970,000-square-foot, 100% renewable energy facility, employers are partnering with local leaders of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and OhioMeansJobs to host electrician hiring events, which ACT Ohio will post notice of as they are scheduled.

“Electricians of all skill levels are needed for a project of this scale and complexity,” said David Moran, International Representative for the IBEW 4th District, which represents Building Trades electricians in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. “This data center project means long-term employment for 40 to 70 hours a week at prevailing wages with employer-paid benefits, including family health care, for hundreds upon hundreds of Ohio electricians.”

Journeyman electricians, construction electricians, apprentice electricians and construction wiremen are all needed for the job. Applicants must be 18 years or older and have attained some level of high school education.

“Ohio’s Building Trades workers, including the electricians who are building the infrastructure of our digital world at this new data center, are a major reason that Ohio is a desirable location for this type of investment,” said Matt Szollosi, Executive Director of ACT Ohio. “By hiring skilled electricians at prevailing wage, the investors behind this project will have a lasting impact on the economic well-being of working Ohioans and their families.”
