Membership in Hudbay’s Quarter Century Club climbed to over 31 hundred Friday night with the presentation of watches to 13 employees who have completed 25 years of continuous service with the Company. Vice-President of the Manitoba Business Unit Rob Winton spoke on this year’s centennial of the Flin Flon ore discovery in 1915 praising the many generations that have worked there and looking to the future. He said 2015 presented many challenges to them in Manitoba and 2016 promises to be no easier given the environment they’re operating in today but they have a hundred years of overcoming enormous challenges in this part of the world so with the dedication and assistance of everyone sitting in this room and everyone in their organization he’s very confident they will exceed their objectives and collectively take the company to a better place.
