Ridgway Industrial Development Corporation discusses “The Tannery"

Staff Writer

The Ridgway Industrial Development Corporation is looking for a new owner or tenants for a recently acquired property located at 310 Tanner Street Street in Ridgway. 
Now dubbed "The Tannery”, the former site of Metal Powder Products (MPP) was purchased by the RIDC in close cooperation with MPP. 
"RIDC was one of the first to reach out to MPP when the announcement came out that they were leaving Ridgway and transferring the jobs to other plants," said Steve Cleveland of Elk County Foods and a member of RIDC. "We offered whatever help we could to try to keep the company here, which is one of the functions of RIDC. But when it became clear that was not going to happen. We stepped in to fill the void."
