WVMA Winter Conf 2019 1040x150 2

WVMA Trend Talks 500x500 1

Clarksburg has a special neighbor in the community, Stockmeier Urethanes, which is part of the Stockmeier Group. Stockmeier is a nearly century-old, family-owned polyurethane manufacturer with several locations in Europe and a foothold in the United States with its West Virginia plant.

The West Virginia Manufacturers Association traveled to Clarksburg to visit Stockmeier for the latest installment in our Made with WV Pride video series.

WVMA President Rebecca McPhail and Stockmeier President and CEO Chris Martinkat toured the plant to see how a wide variety of products from athletic tracks to specialty foams and gels are made with pride in the Mountain State.

Since the 1970s, family-owned Kreinik Manufacturing has produced high-quality threads for needle work and fly fishing from its Parkersburg plant.

Their products are so highly regarded, in fact, that they were used in costumes for the wildly popular Game of Thrones television series in addition to many other movies and TV shows.

For a closer look at a company whose products are sold all over the world, watch the West Virginia Manufacturing Association’s latest installment of its Made With WV Pride video series.

Join WVMA President Rebecca McPhail as she visits with Doug Kreinik to learn more about his family business.

Showcasing yet another global manufacturer with operations in the Mountain State, the West Virginia Manufacturers Association heads to Covestro’s South Charleston plant in our latest installment of the Made with WV Pride series.

Germany-based Covestro is among the leading suppliers of premium polymers with two of its 30 global locations in West Virginia. Their materials and application solutions are found in nearly every area of modern life, from mattresses and car seats to insulating materials for refrigeration and building materials.

The company’s South Charleston facility employs 105 people plus another 25 contractors. Join WVMA President Rebecca McPhail as she takes a closer at what Covestro makes with pride in West Virginia.
