“As we celebrate our first 100 years, it is truly gratifying to be surrounded by many of those who played such a significant role in the company’s success” said Tom Leonard, president, Bibby-Ste-Croix. “Manufacturing has been the cornerstone of the Canadian economy. I commend our hard-working team members for their dedication and commitment to the company.”
