Atlas Pressed Metals, located in DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has received an award for creating jobs and making positive contributions to Pennsylvania’s economy as part of the regions 2015 Governor’s ImPAct Awards. The Small Business Impact Award is given to a small business that has been an innovator within its industry, demonstrated revenue/profit growth, increased its workforce, and committed to the growth and development of its employees and community.

“This comes as such an honour to everyone here at Atlas,” stated Atlas’ President Jude Pfingstler, “we all made this happen together.”


Atlas was the recipient of a Small Business Impact award for its commitment to industry advancement and active research in materials and production innovation; for its proactive support of students and promoting careers in science, technology and manufacturing; for its intentional movement toward business growth demonstrated by management leadership and an ongoing expansion and new investment in equipment; for its role as an employer, supporting and encouraging employees to foster the company’s growth; and for its philosophy of providing excellent and timely customer service, empowered through in-house expertise and the belief that the best business practices are conducted through nurturing business relationships.


“Today we celebrate Pennsylvanians who work hard every day to help their workers thrive, to grow their companies, and to improve the communities in which they live,” stated Laura Williams, Team Pennsylvania Foundation’s President. “All of these things, one day, one place at a time, help to make Pennsylvania better.”

Atlas was nominated for the award by the Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance (PREP) network. Each of the 10 PREP regions submitted up to five nominations per category. The PREP network works to regionalise and coordinate local economic development services to businesses and entrepreneurs.
