Mortenson Construction says it is opening a new office in San Antonio, Texas, to support the company's growing energy business, including key wind and solar projects in the state.

Mortenson plans to open its San Antonio facility in the first half of 2014. The company says the office initially will include 30-40 team members supporting several hundred field positions throughout Texas, with future employment needs anticipated to be much higher.

“Texas has a strong economy and is a leader in the U.S. energy industry,” says Tom Wacker, senior vice president at Mortenson. “We have built many projects across several industries in Texas over the years, and now we are committed to being there full-time as an active member of the San Antonio business community, serving our customers and creating jobs. This new office will be the center for many of our operations in and around the area.”

Mortenson has built nearly 80 projects in Texas to date and currently has several under way in the state.
