Banks Gas Services finds success in jobs outside shale industry

Tom Banks isn’t interested in chasing work in the Marcellus shale.Instead, he wants the business that Marcellus pipeline contractors have left behind.“We’re really good at what we do in the city,” said Banks, owner of Banks Gas Services, a gas line contractor in North Versailles. “I don’t want to leave our strengths to go into the Marcellus.”The past five years have brought constant expansion for Banks. His company, which has grown from about 10 employees in 2008 to more than 50, works with utilities such as Columbia Gas and Peoples to upgrade the gas distribution lines running through neighborhood streets.
