To the Editor:

I would like to thank Ken Hebb of St. Lawrence Brewing in Canton for choosing to purchase equipment locally for his brewery.

A majority of income from this project was in turn spent locally for supplies and labor. In fact, the size of this project significantly contributed to the creation of a new job at my business.

Mr. Hebb had other options available when sourcing the equipment for the brewery, but made the choice to have the equipment fabricated right here in St. Lawrence County. Beyond keeping money in our community, this allowed for brewing tanks specifically tailored to the space available.

There are many capable businesses in our community, please consider them for your next purchase, as Mr. Hebb did for the brewery. It can be a win-win situation.
