The East Central Ohio region encompasses the six counties of Carroll, Coshocton, Holmes, Stark, Tuscarawas and Wayne, where we are fortunate to have efficient and experienced contractors and subcontractors, as well as an extensively trained and highly-skilled construction work force. Multiple key trade unions, encompassing every facet of the construction industry, have their principal offices in East Central Ohio. These labor organizations sponsor and operate apprenticeship training programs endorsed by the U.S. Department of Labor, ensuring the ongoing availability of highly skilled construction workers.
