WVMA Winter Conf 2019 1040x150 2

Industrial safety is the name of the game for Eagle Manufacturing in Wellsburg, W.Va.  The West Virginia Manufacturers Association took a trip to the Northern Panhandle for our newest installment of the Made With WV Pride series to get an up-close view of this 125-year-old company, which joined the Justrite Safety Group in 2018.

Eagle is a founding member of the WVMA and a global leader in producing industrial safety cans, canisters, cabinets and related products. The company and its hard-working employees showcase West Virginia pride around the world with each product.

Watch the video as WVMA President Rebecca McPhail joins Eagle vice president of operations, Dave Harvey, on a tour of the plant in Wellsburg.

The West Virginia Manufacturers Association’s Made with WV Pride series has traveled to Fairmont for a visit at ND Paper, a subsidiary of the Nine Dragons Paper Holding Ltd.

ND Paper operates a recycled pulp mill that has operated in the community since the mid-1990s. ND Fairmont manufactures and distributes recycled pulp used in a wide range of products, from packaging to tissue paper.

With a prime location in north-central West Virginia, the mill has an annual production capacity of approximately 218,000 metric tons and is one of only three in the world that produces air-dried recycled pulp.

ND Paper Fairmont’s general manager, Steve Demyon, takes WVMA President Rebecca McPhail on a tour of their facility and shows her the full production line. 

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.

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.
