Indiana, PA – Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Assistant Secretary for Technology and Innovation Steve D’Ettorre today celebrated Pennsylvania Manufacturing Week by highlighting the manufacturing industry and the relationship between technology and innovation during a tour of Indiana County.
