New Duncan business hosts job fair

Duncan Recycling & Refining (DR2) hosted a job fair Wednesday to hire auxiliary and smelter operators to operate complex mechanical and electrical systems. Over 250 people applied and were interviewed during the event.

DR2 partnered with the Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation (DAEDF), Red River Technology Center, and Edgewater Technical Associates to inform, screen, and identify candidates. 

"We are extremely impressed with the attitude and skill of the workforce available in Duncan," said Trace Nichols, operation manager for DR2. "Knowing the work ethic and history of manufacturing in the community was one of the reasons we selected Duncan for our operations. The bonus of working with DAEDF, Red River Technology Center and others is the icing on the cake."

"Adding jobs to the Duncan area is DAEDF's primary goal," said Lyle Roggow, president of the foundation. "We've worked with DR2 for over two years and now everything is coming to fruition with hiring and soon operating. This is such a great opportunity for our community."
