MicroSeismic employees recently joined the festivities in Center, TX at the East Texas Poultry Festival as the Platinum Sponsor of the event. Held in Center, TX on the historic downtown square, over 9,000 people attended the festival in three days.
MicroSeismic employees also raised hundreds of dollars on the final day of the festival at the MicroSeismic mechanical bull ride! This money goes back into the community and Shelby County Chamber philanthropic endeavors.
Why the poultry fest? MicroSeismic recently opened a 10,000 square foot facility in Center, TX. The business will be an economic asset to Center, initially creating more than 80 jobs, with an expectation to increase. Local Panola College has even created a new training program with a focus on Petroleum Technology to ensure that students are receiving the proper training for jobs in the oil and gas industry. MicroSeismic has hired several student interns this summer, all from the Panola Petroleum Technology program.
Center, TX, was chosen from seven potential sites based on their proximity to existing and planned BuriedArray installations and the town’s progressive, business-friendly attitude.
