Penn Stainless Products, a distributor of stainless steel sheet, plate, bar, structural, pipe, and tubular products in Quakertown, PA, and Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, have announced a joint venture.
This partnership will enable the Quakertown business and the university to work together to expand opportunities between material users and the research community. The collaboration will align the expertise of Lehigh’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering and more than 20 specialty stainless, duplex and nickel alloys provided by Penn Stainless.
The students will be exposed to real-world issues facing metal
consumers and will conduct experiments to resolve technical issues related to corrosion and welding.
BCEDC assisted Penn Stainless Products through then partner, Bucks County Industrial Development Authority, with tax-free financing.
