Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania:  Postponed: The Focus Central Pennsylvania Industrial Development Forum that was scheduled for Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 is postponed until June of 2021. Event participant’s health and well-being are top priority. The Event Committee is committed to planning an even bigger and better event for June 2021. The conversations and topics planned for this June will most likely drastically change due to economic disruption the pandemic has created. Focus Central Pennsylvania will ensure the 2021 event has a relevant and informative schedule of topics and speakers that address the most critical and high impact industrial development activities in the northeast.  The event scheduled included keynote Michael Marr, Business Integration Lead for Shell Pennsylvania Chemicals, to provide updates on the multi-billion dollar “cracker plant” investment in western PA; panels of manufacturing leaders from regional growing companies including Sekisui SPI, Kreamer Feed, Autoneum North American, GAF, BrightFarms, Unipar Inc, FirstQuality, Videon; a panel of regional leaders from critical infrastructure partners including PPL Electric, UGI Utilities, PhilaPort, LIVIC Civil, PA DCED, PennDOT District 3-0; and leaders in regional development including Grayston Enterprises, Patton Warehousing, North Shore Railroad Company & Affiliates and CORE Design Group.
