Swager Towers in Fremont job Creation

Posted: Friday, November 1, 2013 2:37 pm | By Jennifer Decker
FREMONT — A Fremont-based, family-owned international manufacturer has created 28 jobs since February with more positions planned in the coming year.
Swager Communication, 501 E. Swager Drive, a northeast tower manufacturer, has experienced rapid growth and has obtained more contracts through the transportation and defense industries.
“The major challenge we’ve faced is finding the workers with the skills and training needed to fill our positions in the field,” said Dan Swager, company president.
Swager plans to create at least 15 more jobs by March 2014.
Since the beginning of this year, Swager has had an overall impact of more than $4 million in the economy. That is based on the company’s emphasis on regional purchasing and sourcing.
The company has orders from one of the nation’s leading defense contractors of more than $2 million, according to a news release.
In July, Swager was awarded a six-year tax abatement from the Fremont Town Council on $201,000 in equipment, with 21 employees retained and two more to be added. The job creation aspect has exceeded the estimate.
Swager Communications, Inc. is a family-owned and operated business established in 1950 by William E. Swager. Since 1950, the Swager family has been in the business of design, fabrication and erection of steel towers. The Swagers have been pioneers in the tower and communications industry in the United States since its inception, said the news release.
For more than 50 years, the Swager family has performed turnkey communications construction contracts for government agencies and commercial accounts. Such contracts involve work from around the world.

What is reverse angle parking?

Reverse angle parking is a safer type of angle parking that the town has started using. Instead of pulling into the parking spot, cars back into their spots, allowing them to make eye contact with oncoming traffic when exiting the parking space.

Back-In Angle Parking
Back-in Angle Parking can now be found on the south side of the downtown.read information

 

 

How does back-in angle parking work?

Just like parallel parking:

Signal a right turn to warn other drivers.  
Pull past the parking spot and stop.
Reverse into the parking spot.

These three simple steps are illustrated by the diagram below.
