Kennametal employees recognised at Women in Manufacturing STEP Ahead Awards

March 2, 2020

Two employees of Kennametal Inc., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, Robyn Young, Senior Staff Engineer, and Samantha Case, Manufacturing Engineer, will be honoured at the Women in Manufacturing STEP Ahead Awards taking place April 30 in Washington, D.C. Presented by The Manufacturing Institute, the awards celebrate women making an impact in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production (STEP). 

Young and Case are among 130 women from 106 companies to receive this industry honour, and follow ten other Kennametal employees who have received the award in prior years. Young has reportedly led multiple product launches, process improvements and capital installations during her more than twenty-year career with the company. She has mentored numerous programme engineers across Kennametal locations globally, and implemented standardised best practices to improve operations.

Case is said to have been instrumental in the development and training for several tooling departments and process improvements within Kennametal’s US plants. In addition, she is said to serve as a mentor for the company’s early-career rotational leadership development programme, of which she is also a graduate.

“Congratulations to Robyn and Samantha on this well-deserved recognition,” stated Christopher Rossi, Kennametal President and CEO. “The two of them exemplify our core values and are on the front-line every day helping us innovate and problem-solve for our customers. We applaud their leadership and the example they are setting for all manufacturing leaders at Kennametal.”

“The STEP Ahead Awards provide a platform to honour role models and motivate them to encourage the next generation of women in the manufacturing industry,” explained Carolynn Lee, Executive Director of the Manufacturing Institute. “The women being recognised are industry leaders – and inspirations to the women and girls who will follow their example and pursue careers in manufacturing,”
