PITTSFIELD, Maine — Cianbro Corp. is looking to hire 150 Maine construction workers.

Cianbro President Andi Vigue said the company had a backlog of projects and needs workers to help fill job openings.

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to employ our fellow citizens,” said Vigue. “We’re bullish on hiring Maine people who possess the skills necessary to accomplish the challenging projects that Cianbro faces. Not only will those people we are hiring become part of the largest construction firm in the Northeast, they will also become co-owners in our employee-owned company on day one.”

The company is seeking Maine state licensed electricians and helpers who would be assigned to jobs in the Bangor area, Brewer, Auburn and other locations in the southern part of the state.

Structural iron workers and riggers are needed in Bangor and Brewer. Journey-level millwrights, pipe welders and pipe fitters are needed for Greater Bangor and Woodland. Cianbro also is seeking first-class transmission lineworkers, electrical engineers, electrical superintendents, mechanical superintendents, safety professionals, estimators and project controllers.

The employee search comes on the heels of Cianbro’s hiring of 250 workers last fall.
