KENNAMETAL PARTNERS WITH AMERICAN PRECISION MUSEUM
PITTSBURGH, NOVEMBER 21, 2023 — Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) announced today its partnership with the American Precision Museum (APM) in Windsor, Vermont—home to one of the largest collections of historically significant machine tools in the country.
“Our partnership with APM is a natural fit to tell Kennametal’s 85-year story of expertise and innovation across industries while also showcasing where we’re headed next,” said Keith Mudge, Kennametal Vice President of Sales - Americas. “We hope our sponsorship will help APM continue its mission to inspire future generations of innovators with the help of our tooling solutions.”
As part of this collaboration, APM is showcasing Kennametal tools in its makerspace where visitors can explore and learn about different machining solutions. Kennametal will also contribute to historical exhibits showcasing the contributions of the company’s founder, metallurgist Philip McKenna, and Kennametal’s longstanding legacy in the manufacturing industry overall.
“It is particularly fulfilling to be supported by a world class innovator of machining solutions. We look forward to presenting the story of Philip McKenna’s development of tungsten carbide, and we are very fortunate to have Kennametal’s ongoing support as we attempt to inspire next generations to develop careers in manufacturing,” said APM Chairman Lee Morris.
Located at the renovated Robbins & Lawrence Armory in Windsor, Vermont, which is recognized as the founding space for precision interchangeable parts in the United States, APM focuses on using history as a learning tool to talk about modern concepts and technologies, while exploring today and imagining tomorrow. While its mission to inspire generations includes today’s youth with a presence in over 45 schools through an education program, APM also focuses on workforce development, employment and more.
