Pittsburgh, PA – Today, Governor Josh Shapiro and Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Rick Siger joined legislative and business leaders during a visit to Mill 19 in Pittsburgh to highlight the important role of robotics and advanced manufacturing in the Commonwealth’s new Economic Development Strategy — the first plan of its kind to guide the Commonwealth in almost 20 years.
