Congrats to Barrie’s JEBCO, a steel manufacturing company on Ellis Drive, who have won two major contracts.  See details here:


Here’s the part I really like – they are hiring and have added more skilled industrial jobs in Barrie.

“In 2011 alone , JEBCO has added 40 new staff to its team and is looking for an additional 10-15 team members to address its continued growth and commmitments into 2012 and 2013. “As a growing and expanding company, we are looking to add staff that will be part of our team for the long haul. Skilled trades such as welders, fitters and project managers familiar with medium to heavy steel fabrications are the ideal candidate” says company President, Brett Murray.”
