This is my third State of the City Address and as with the first two we are presenting in different areas of Hamilton to reflect on and reinforce the strength, heritage and importance of every part of our City.
It is appropriate that Stoney Creek is our venue today because of its importance to the economic well-being of our community. I want to thank today’s program sponsor, Kubes, whose success has derived from the very things I want to talk to you about today. Kubes Steel offers a range of custom roll form services for structural steel sections, metal sheet, tube, angle, pipe and beams. Their expertise has made them a leader in architectural exposed structural steel projects throughout North America. Kubes Steel is the result of over 3 decades of investment in founder Joe Kubes’ vision which is a vision that we at the City of Hamilton would do well to emulate…. to be the best at what we do by investment in plant, equipment, training, technology and most importantly, people. So thank you again for helping make today possible and (for) inspiring a vision for Hamilton.
