Midwest Mosaic is going to work for Warren Buffett!
We just received a subcontract from Ohio Valley based Dunlop & Johnston to provide tile and and installation labor at Norfolk and Southern Railroad's (NYSE:NSC) Bellvue, Ohio facility. The project features two pairs of employee bathroom and showers plus a washroom in the perch of the yard switching tower. How cool is that!?
At nearly 4000 square feet, the project will keep a crew of three working for about a month. Onward job creation!
We are pleased to add Mr. Richard Fajardo to the project to assist compliance with two programs; 1) Ohio Bureau of Worker Compensation Drug Free Workplace and 2. E-Rail Safe, a Homeland Security program. Fajardo writes on HR and management matters at Motivated Innovation, and is an expert in these things.
In 2007, as a bet on the impending recovery, Buffett acquired a stake in NSC through his flagship fund, Berkshire Hathaway. Mr. Warren knows a good value when he sees it. While the recovery may not be as strong as he anticipated, we knew we had a good value all along, and we're glad to have caught his attention.
