50 Years of Excellence

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations in 2008, Essroc Cement in Picton contracted History Lives Here Inc. to create a DVD that reviewed its origins, significant milestones and importance to the local economy as a major employer, purchaser of goods and services, and corporate donor sponsoring the activities of many community organizations. Today, the company is a major cement supplier shipping much of its product by boat to American markets.

The video was premiered at a special gala evening held at The Regent Theatre in Picton on March 17, 2008.
