Builder's Choice discusses their decision to move to Vermillion in the recent edition of Basin Bits, The Official Publication of the North Dakota Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties.
As stated in the article "Bakken Bucks Beyond the Border" by Paul Adair, Vermillion is approximately 600 miles from the center of the oil boom, but according to Builder's Choice owner and President Mark Larson, We figured that the extra few miles to ship product into the Bakken was a small price to pay to have access to good workers. Besides, a lot of the guys that are building product who would be our competition are even further away, so we think that were in a great location, says Larson.
