HME Mobility and Accessibility today celebrated the expansion of its Richmond headquarters with a ribbon-cutting ceremony performed by local dignitaries.
Robert Boscacci and Cameron Fleming, the firm’s partners, were extremely pleased that so many of HME’s business clients and community officials were able to attend the event.
“We are delighted to be a part of Richmond’s vibrant and growing business community,” said Boscacci, “and we look forward to working with other local entrepreneurs for many years in the future.”
Fleming had special praise for the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, which helped to organize the ribbon-cutting ceremony through its ‘Business After 5’ event-series.
“The Chamber has done so much to encourage the development of Richmond, promoting entrepreneurship and providing much-needed services, and we are very proud to be members of such a dynamic organization.”
Linda McPhail, a life-long Richmond resident and a member of Richmond City Council – and for seven years Chair of School Board #38 – led the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Also participating were Gerard Edwards and Craig Jones, respectively the Chairman and Executive Director of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce.
HME, which has more than 30 employees, is one of Richmond’s fastest-growing companies.
In 2013, Fleming and Boscacci were named as recipients of the Business Excellence Award for Young Entrepreneurs by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce.
