HARRISBURG – Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-37) today applauded Pennsylvania’s continued investment in Neighborhood 91 at the Pittsburgh Airport Innovation Campus (PAIC). Earlier this week, it was announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) awarded $3 million to the Allegheny County Airport Authority toward the project’s development.
“So much of western Pennsylvania was built on innovation, and here in heart of the 37th District at Pittsburgh International Airport, progress is being made at Neighborhood 91, the first development in the world to both condense and connect all components of the additive manufacturing and 3D printing supply chain into one powerful production ecosystem,” said Robinson. “This project has the potential to advance the Pittsburgh region’s role as a world leader in this industry and I am pleased to see the Commonwealth’s continued investment in PAIC.”
The Authority will receive $1,200,000 through a Business in Our Sites Grant and $1,800,000 through a Business in Our Sites Loan for Phase III. Future plans include additional commercial, research and development space.
“The next phase of manufacturing in Pennsylvania is taking shape at Neighborhood 91 at the Pittsburgh Innovation Campus, where companies are using advanced manufacturing solutions in a growing number of applications. We are appreciative of the support from the Commonwealth, that paired with Sen. Robinson’s leadership and vision, will help grow this campus and region,” said Vince Gastgeb, Senior Vice President of Corporate and Government Relations with the Allegheny County Airport Authority.
The project was funded by the CFA, which is an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development that administers many of Pennsylvania’s economic development and community improvement programs.
