JENKINSVILLE — The Shaw Group, the contractor group that hires the workforce at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Plant expansion in Fairfield County, officially was acquired Wednesday by the group CB&I.
According to Gentry Brann, the Shaw Group’s vice president of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications, “the only change that will be taking place at the nuclear work site will be a change to the signs there.”
The same workforce will be used as before. People can still go to the Midlands Technical College Quick Jobs Center for assistance in setting up online profile, too.
