Induron Sponsors Inaugural Contractor Connect Event

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Induron was honored to be a headlining sponsor of the Inaugural “Contractor Connect” event held last November at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama.

All of this occurred at a classic hotel that pre-dates the Civil War (part of the history of The Grand includes a cannon ball from the Battle of Mobile!) located on the serene waters of the Mobile Bay.
