Earlier this month, NEPIRC’s Business and IT Manager, Paul Peter Olszewski, received the national Unsung Hero Award from the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) community for his diligent work in helping regional manufacturers recover from damage caused by Tropical Storm Lee in September of last year.

Mr. Olszewski was chosen for the award by a committee of MEP Center leaders from across the nation based upon a nomination authored by NEPIRC’s Board of Directors and supporting documentation provided by regional manufacturers and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania officials.
