Al Letizio Jr., president and chief executive officer of A.J. Letizio, said they were glad to be in the metro area in New York. He said he felt the enthusiasm that his family felt when they first came by boat to New York as immigrants from Italy about 120 years ago.

“This is just a great evening and we want to thank all of you who have come out to spend some time with us to mark this moment as we open up our new facility,” Letizio Jr. said.
