Suburban metal manufacturers join forces to expand business opportunities
CRESTWOOD, Ill. - A new effort is underway to bring jobs to Chicago’s south suburbs.
A celebration was held in suburban Crestwood Friday to mark the launch of a new Metals Hub.
The Hubs is a collaborative network of metals, machinery, and equipment manufacturers who are committed to developing news business opportunities in the area.
"The Hubs approach to increasing the capacity of local manufacturers, identifying new supply chains, and collectively pursuing contracts and customers — represents a game changing, economic development strategy," Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said.
