Mon Yough Area Chamber hosts National Manufacturing Day Lunceon

This event provided a forum for a conversation among leaders in government, industry and labor on the importance of manufacturing in the Mon Valley, its future and the significance of the recent investments in the region.

The event not only celebrated National Manufacturing Day but explored key issues that promote a pro-growth/pro-jobs climate for manufacturing and industry in the Mon Valley. More than 130 people attended the event.

Panelists were Tim Joyce, chief of staff for state Sen. Jim Brewster; Rep. Austin Davis, D-McKeesport; Rep. Michael Puskaric, R-Elizabeth Township; Allegheny County Councilman (District 9) Robert Macey; Department of Community and Economic Development Southwest Regional Director Johnna Pro; Kurt Barshick, general manager of U. S. Steel’s Mon Valley Works; Pittsburgh Regional Alliance Vice President of Business Investment Patty Horvatich; Peoples Natural Gas Vice President of Business Development Jeff Nehr; and Jeff Nobers, executive director, Builders Guild of Western Pennsylvania. The moderator was Michael Bartley, executive vice president of production and development for the Steeltown Entertainment Project.

At the conclusion of the luncheon, MYAC President Maury Burgwin said, “It is the Mon Yough Chamber’s hope that the discussion will spark future debate about the role of manufacturing in the region’s economy … to bring people together, create resources, to maximize our opportunities to build industry and business here in the Mon Valley.
