SAN ANTONIO - Construction companies in the San Antonio-New Braunfels metropolitan area added 1,100 employees to their payrolls for the 12 months ended December 31, 2013, according to a report by Associated General Contractors of America.

As of December 31, 2012, local contractors reported a total of 40,300 employees. A year later, the employment count stood at 41,400 — an increase of 3 percent.

The modest increase may not be very exciting but it is telling of the local construction market, which has fared much better, compared to other cities around the U.S. in terms of employment. However, in Texas, all of the major metros saw modest employment increases in their construction industries in December.
