DE Governor’s Construction Expo

Diamond Materials, LLC. participated in the first ever DE Governor’s Construction Career Expo on Friday, September 21 and Saturday, September 22. On Friday, 2,000 middle school students from New Castle County learned about the construction industry with hands-on learning activities and interactive experiences. It was a great time teaching the students about heavy equipment and showing them various ways equipment is used on our job sites. On Saturday, the event was open to the public for a free family-friendly career fair. The construction industry is one of Delaware’s fastest growing employment sectors with more than 3,500 job openings expected through 2024. It is important to encourage our youth to consider the construction trades as a rewarding and positive career option.
