Communications construction company MasTec announces new Fremont site

FREMONT — Telecommunications construction company MasTec Inc. is the latest new business to move into Sandusky County.

The Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation announced Thursday MasTec are the new occupants of a previously vacant Fremont industrial building located at 800 Hagerty Dr. 

Bob Gross, Fremont’s economic development director, told the News-Messenger last week MasTec wants to move in equipment and start hiring within the next couple of weeks, with a goal of being up and running by June 1.

The company plans to create 40 new jobs, with aerial and underground labor positions starting at $20 an hour, and experienced linemen making up to $35-40 hour, according to the SCEDC.

Proximity to Toledo was a plus

Beth Hannam, Sandusky County’s economic development director, said James Fillar, MasTec’s operations manager, really liked the Hagerty Drive building and Fremont’s close proximity to Toledo.

“He had looked at locations in Toledo. The cost and conditions of some of those locations were not up to par,” Hannam said Thursday.

MasTec plans to start hiring within the next couple of weeks, with a goal of being up and running by June 1.

MasTec is a Coral Gables, Fla.-based company with offices across North America.

The company serves the telecommunications industry, including Verizon, AT&T, Frontier and Charter Communications.

Hannam said MasTec didn’t look for economic incentives to open a location in Fremont and conducted its own public search, which resulted in them looking through the SCEDC website and ultimately choosing the Hagerty Drive site.
