Spend a day touring Cambria County's top manufacturers and tech companies while connecting with their top executives and project managers. After the tours, a special networking reception will follow. This is a free event with transportation provided. It is open to both members and nonmembers of the PTC.

In partnership with the Pittsburgh Technology Council (PTC), join the Cambria County Bridge to Pittsburgh initiative on a day-long road trip to Johnstown, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.  The day will be filled with company tours, demonstrations, lunch, and local attractions.  End the day meeting local talent and networking with decision-makers all while enjoying local cuisine, beer, wine, and a live band.  

Coach buses will leave from the Pittsburgh Technology Council at 2000 Technology Drive at 8:00 a.m. and travel the short 65-miles to Johnstown’s Richland neighborhood to explore Department of Defense contractors Concurrent Technology Corporation and Problem Solutions starting at 10:00 a.m. Walk through technology development test beds for additive manufacturing, water re-use and learning technologies. Tours will continue along with lunch at Martin-Baker America, birthplace of the Most Advanced Ejection Seat In The World.  

Afternoon activities include guided tours of downtown Johnstown to view city rejuvenation activities, opportunities for new development and showcase business expansion opportunities.  At JWF Industries, the area’s top-employing metals manufacturer, meet with CEO Bill Polacek to see the services they have been providing to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Defense Contractors for over 25 years.

Complete the bus trip with a networking event in a former mill building to meet local decision-makers and mingle with the region’s top talent.  Enjoy a live band and taste local cuisine while also browsing industry booths from more of Cambria County’s leading businesses.  The social event will conclude at 6:00 p.m. and bus will return to the PTC for 8:00 p.m.
