Southco opens new manufacturing operation in Concordville, PA

With RT&E's guidance in public relations, Southco rededicated their Concordville, PA, campus as their new state-of-the-art Injection Molding and Rapid Prototyping Center of Excellence. To prepare for the event, we contacted the media to promote coverage of the event and organized the invitation and attending lists. We also arranged for the attendance of Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak, and both State legislators Stephen Barrar and Domenic Pileggi, who attended to share Southco's spirit of keeping technology and manufacturing jobs in America. The new facility is only part of the 135,000 square feet of manufacturing operations housed at the global headquarters, and represents Southco's investment to keep technology development and highly skilled manufacturing jobs in the greater Philadelphia/Southeastern Pennsylvania region in order to better serve the company's North America customer base. Southco serves over 70,000 customers in 70 countries with 3,000 employees worldwide.
