This a major step that will change the future and direction of our family company, and a big step to our next level of performance” said CTP’s Vice President Mrs. Teresa Uribe at the ceremony. “To us, this is not just a big building that we need for space. It’s a place where we will be able to increase our manufacturing range, proudly making our family of heavy equipment parts right here in the USA. A place that will allow us to focus on our efficiency, and a place where our customers can come to learn, exchange ideas, and grow their own business. It will be a place where our people can relax, play, learn and develop. But it’s incredibly satisfying that we are also bringing new jobs and new opportunities to our home community here in sunny Miami.”
“I’m proud that I could be here with the Uribe Family, the CTP business officers, and the community leaders celebrating this historic moment for this company and all it represents here in our community” said Lieutenant Governor of Florida Jeanette Nuñez.
