He mentioned that matching funds are available to help with these projects.
Wendall Hollingsworth, this years out going STEDCO president, mentioned a $25,000 contribution to Equibrand to help with construction costs on a 100,000 square foot building, now under construction, for their move to Stephenville. Equibrand plans to hire over 50 employees.
