Solid Infrastructure Builds A Nation; It Also Buttresses A Family Business
Infrastructure. The dictionary defines it as an “underlying foundation or basic framework.” In public policy circles, infrastructure means public works like transportation systems, communication networks, sewage, water, and electric systems. In a family business, infrastructure means entrepreneurs bound by love, respect and history.
As congress debates passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package, I spoke with Ellie Kassner of W.H. Kassner, Inc. to learn more about how the bill would impact Rockland County. Kassner shed light both on infrastructure, as in public works, and infrastructure, as in family business.
Kassner’s company, W. H. Kassner, has been part of public works projects since shortly after its founding in 1961. The company is an ornamental and architectural miscellaneous metal subcontractor that delivers high quality function over form components. For public works projects, W.H. Kassner custom fabricates commercial stairs, railings, platforms, canopies, and ladders, among other items.
