The grant is part of an IT implementation program run by eBizITPA, which includes some funding from the Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC). eBizITPA is a technology-based economic development organization whose mission is to assist Pennsylvania businesses with understanding, using, and developing information technologies to grow the economy.

The updates they plan for their websites will continue this tradition by updating functions like ecommerce on their website, and by utilizing other PA businesses on this project” said Amy Bridger, Director of Advanced Technology Products & Projects for eBizITPA.
Kapp Alloy & Wire will be partnering with Allegheny Graphics (www.alleghenygraphics.com) of Kittanning, PA, to update the websites.
