Dennis Davin, Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) secretary, along with local dignitaries, toured the manufacturing facilities of Curry Supply Company on June 22.

The visit was part of Davin’s “Jobs That Pay” tour, highlighting Pennsylvania Gov. Wolf’s budget proposals to reinvigorate the manufacturing sector and recapitalize various economic development tools.

“The significant reforms proposed in our budget will continue to move Pennsylvania forward by creating a pro-business climate that supports our manufacturing sector,” said Davin.

Jason Ritchey, Curry Supply president, lead the tour along with other company managers. Starting at the Curry Supply engineering office, the tour proceeded through the fabrication shop, the tank shop, the assembly shop, the paint facility, and then the test bays. Davin was shown how tanks were created from raw steel, welded, inspected, assembled, painted and tested, all on site. He learned that as an ISO certified manufacturing facility, quality inspections are conducted at every manufacturing step.

“Curry Supply has grown tremendously over our 83 year history,” said Ritchey. “Utilizing various state programs has allowed our company to expand our facilities and create new jobs. We are pleased that Secretary Davin and the others were able to see, first-hand, the diversity of our product line and the passion we put into our manufacturing process.”

Joining Davin on the tour were representatives of the Southern Alleghenies Planning & Development Commission and Marty Marasco, president/CEO of the Altoona-Blair County Development Corporation.

“Companies in our region utilize state and local programs to advance investments as well as job creation and retention efforts,” said Marasco. “We are thankful for the cooperative partnerships with the governor, DCED, and our local businesses, like Curry Supply Company, which allow for growth here in Blair County and the Commonwealth.”
