SUGAR LAND--February 6, 2017--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Attendees at next week's Annual Supplier Expo in Houston, Texas, can meet with Tony Salemme, Industrial Info's Vice President - Craft Labor Group, who will share his expertise on labor markets. Hosted by ISM-Houston, the expo will be held February 15 at the Marriott West Loop by the Galleria.

Salemme, who will have a booth at the expo, said Industrial Info's Labor Forecast Tool can help companies access labor risks for any major project in the process industries. The event runs from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Industrial Info serves the top 100 project owners and top 20 engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms in the Gulf Coast region.

At a recent event, Salemme noted that many in the downstream refining market are facing difficulties finding and maintaining craft workers, especially those involved in the massive buildout along the U.S. Gulf Coast. He noted that the predictability of capital projects has become a major concern, with some fixed-cost EPC projects losing value amid repeated scheduling delays.
