The West Virginia Manufacturers Association is back on the road with our Made with WV Pride series, making a stop at Pietro Fiorentini in the Northern Panhandle.

In 2018, Pietro Fiorentini opened its first permanent manufacturing operation in the United States for the production of gas pressure regulators and natural gas treatment plants in Weirton, W.Va.

Headquartered in Italy, Pietro Fiorentini is a leader in the production of oil and natural gas products and services, including pressure regulators, metering systems and other components for the natural gas industry specifically designed for American markets. The Weirton factory produces the parts and machinery needed for the drilling operations in the tristate region.

WVMA President Rebecca McPhail joins Max Ambrosi, chief commercial officer, for a tour of the plant to see first-hand what Pietro Fiorentini is making with pride in West Virginia.

West Virginia is home to Homer Laughlin China Company, one of the few remaining large scale china makers in the United States. Founded in 1871 by brothers Homer and Shakespeare Laughlin, the company is best known for its iconic Fiestaware, a colorful collection of dinnerware and accessories.

Created with the simple premise of making quality china at a fair price, that tradition continues today. Join the WVMA and learn more about what’s Made with West Virginia Pride at Homer Laughlin China Company.
