“PA Made Again: PA’s Reshoring Initiative” is focused on creating/retaining manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania by spurring direct foreign investment, encouraging firms to relocate jobs to Pennsylvania that had previously been moved out of the United States, and encouraging those considering relocation to keep operations in the state. SCPa Works and our partners are implementing a collaborative-integrated scope of work targeted at bolstering the region’s infrastructure to create manufacturing jobs.

The PA Made Again initiative will promote growth and create jobs in the target industries by 1) building well-connected networks of industrial clusters that foster efficiencies, collaboration and innovation between firms along supply chains and value streams; 2) fostering a collaborative environment between manufacturers and colleges and other research institutions that focuses not only on the development of new technologies, but also on product development and process innovation; and 3) building a strong pipeline of middle-skilled and highly-skilled manufacturing workers.

SCPa Works, through the PA Made Again initiative, will train more than 300 workers in highly-skilled, in-demand manufacturing occupations that will help Pennsylvania businesses drive continued growth.
