Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops welcomed Governor Charlie Baker for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially dedicate its expanded factory, which was completed at the end of 2017. The event, which celebrated local manufacturing, took place at Metropolitan’s factory at 505 University Ave in Norwood on Thursday, February 15th.
Governor Baker witnessed firsthand where local cabinets and countertops are being created, which go into homes and apartment buildings throughout the state. Governor Baker directly addressed Metropolitan’s manufacturing workforce on the factory floor. “Massachusetts leads the nation because of innovative and successful companies like Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops,” said Governor Baker. “We are proud they chose to expand their Massachusetts operation and look forward to the impact Metropolitan’s success will have on the local economy and their tremendous employees.”
