Join us for the next WiM Pennsylvania Chapter meeting, featuring guest presenter and host, Will Knecht, President of Wendell August Forge.
The meeting will feature a brief presentation by Knecht about America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental gift-ware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. In March 2010, two days after receiving its largest order ever, a fire destroyed millions of dollars in equipment and materials, their offices and their flagship store. Instead of ceding to the devastation, Wendell August upped its workforce, struck distribution deals with 600 stores nationwide and broke ground on a new facility. Knecht will share stories of resiliency about the company and its employees. He will also lead us on a tour of this fascinating company.
