Announced in January (http://www.tradeandindustrydev.com/industry/manufacturing/news/wv-pietro-fiorentini-invest-9m-create-150-jobs-nor-12442), Italy-based Pietro Fiorentini held the groundbreaking ceremony in Weirton, West Virginia (USA). In 2018 Pietro Fiorentini will open its first permanent manufacturing operation in the United States for the production of gas pressure regulators and natural gas treatment plants, thanks to a strong collaboration between management and both local and federal authorities.
“The groundbreaking for Pietro Fiorentini USA’s new factory celebrates both a new beginning and the hard work of many people that made this day possible. It is the result of careful analysis, public-private collaboration, and our excellent West Virginia factory workers who contributed to our success in Wheeling. This new journey will see additional jobs and growth opportunities here in Weirton,” said Dave Watkins, president of Pietro Fiorentini US.
