30 Oct Local Company Built New Bridge for Toronto
I am pleased to share excellent news! A Dartmouth based company, Cherubini Metalworks, has successfully assembled a bridge destined for the waterfront in downtown Toronto.
This is amazing news for a Nova Scotia company succeeding on the national stage!
I have known the owners of Cherubini Metalworks, Danilo and Renato Gaspretto, for over 30 years, through the Italian community. They immigrated to Halifax in the 1960s from the town of Volpago del Montello in the province of Treviso.
They are one of the most hardest working and generous members of the Italian community in Halifax. They have always volunteered their time at the Italian weekend and donated generously to the community. They are well-known for cooking sausages (salsicce) and rosticcini outside at the Italian weekend!
The bridge will head to Toronto via the St. Lawrence Seaway in the coming weeks.
This bridge is the first out of four bridges that will connect downtown Toronto the future Villiers Island, the new island that will be created by extending the Don River through the Port Lands.
Last year, the firm was awarded $550, 000 from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency to expand their facilities and acquire new equipment for this exact scope of project- bridges and structural steel.
Bravi Danilo e Renato!
