    j&j Tankers in high demand

    According to a recent report cited by the Marcellus Shale Coalition, the Marcellus Shale formation could be the leading supply of natural gas in the United States within a decade. Taken in context with projections released earlier this year by the

    Dept. of Energy, the the Pennsylvania Marcellus could produce approximately a quarter of America’s natural gas by 2020. This development could support more than 156,000 jobs and generate $12.8 billion in economic activity in Pa. In addition to tanker trucks, J&J also

    manufactures hydraulic fracturing systems, tank trailers, winch trucks, frac sanders, and specialty trucks to support natural gas exploration and production.
