Christian A. Garza – Cosentino North America

When is maneuvering 400 to 700 pound slabs of stone in a fabrication facility most likely to result in injury? Cosentino North America knows the answer, but it’s not sharing that valuable information, and with good reason.

Christina Flint – Diplomat Pharmacy Inc.

A quick Google search of Flint, Michigan, returns articles on its water crisis and its fall into destitution after automakers left.
