Nucor to highlight contracting opportunities during expo

Representatives from Nucor West Virginia will discuss opportunities for area companies to contract with the steelmaker behemoth during the Tri-State Metal Tech Expo March 8 in Huntington. The expo is shaping up to be the largest ever metalworking business-to-business events in the region. Companies large and small from 12 West Virginia counties and from eastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio already have registered for the event at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel.

Presented by the Marshall Advanced Manufacturing Center (MAMC), Advantage Valley, and the West Virginia Development Office, the expo will connect metalworking operations of all sizes with large manufacturers that need their services, while providing larger manufacturers with opportunities to shorten supply chains by sourcing metal parts from local businesses.

“You don’t have to operate a machine shop or welding operation or be a large company looking to source metalworking to participate,” said MAMC Director Derek Scarbro. “Maybe you sell metalworking equipment or supplies, provide powder coating, plating or related services. This event is for anyone and everyone who wants to grow their metalworking business, find new customers or identify suppliers closer to home.”

The free expo will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Double Tree, 1001 Third Ave., Huntington. Participants are encouraged to reserve tables so they can share information with attendees about what their company needs or offers. Nucor of West Virginia will provide lunch.

Register at www.mfg.marshall.edu/metaltech. If you have questions or need additional information, contact MAMC’s Tanner Drown at or 304-781-1688.
