CHANNAHON – Before buildings are built, the workers need a place to plan, organize and oversee the work. Satellite Shelters is one of the companies that provides those modular buildings, and it recently celebrated one year at its Channahon site.
The location moved from Lockport in October 2017 after the company wanted to find a location closer to the interstate, branch manager Mary Jager said.
“It wasn’t just the location, though,” Jager said. “It was the people we worked with.”
He said everyone at the village was great to work with for the move.
The location has 14 employees, but each day has six to 10 contractors on-site, as well. Whenever possible, the company hires locally, Jager said.
