Traffic Club partners with Carpenter Tech for fall tour...

Many thanks to Mr. Brian Ruhmel and his colleagues at Carpenter Technology for facilitating a great tour this past October 25th.  The Traffic Club's latest in our Local Business Tours series, we followed the specialty steel making process from start to finish throughout the grounds of Carpenter's expansive Reading campus.  Our group discovered how a multi stage melting process makes Carpenter's steel unique among its peers, saw the steps to form and finish that steel, and finally how it is prepared and packaged for shipping around the world.  Many of our participants commented on how thorough and interesting this tour was and we appreciate Carpenter's hospitaility.  If you missed our tour, please see the video below that covers some of what our group saw.

We're busy looking for other tour opportunities, so stay tuned for our next event.


Great turnout for this tour. This is about half of the total participants we had this year, so we thank everyone for coming.
