LVEDC is excited to partner with the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce on “Manufacturing Momentum in Bethlehem,” an event that highlights the new manufacturing that has come to define the city of Bethlehem.

Mfg in Bethlehem

Once reliant on one manufacturer, Bethlehem has transcended the fall of steel and has rebounded with a strong diversified collection of manufacturing facilities. From the classic to the new model, Bethlehem is not your father’s manufacturing town.

Don Cunningham will lead a panel discussion – with leaders in manufacturing in Bethlehem – which will include the standard bearers – and “new” manufacturers, to discuss the manufacturing climate in Bethlehem and beyond.

The event will be held in the Foundry Room of the Sands Casino Bethlehem Hotel on Wednesday, April 12 at 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm with cocktails, appetizers and the program. Tickets are $40.

Register directly on the Chamber’s website.
