Sintergy, Inc.

Sintergy Inc., a world class manufacturer of custom engineered powder metal components has opened the doors to their new 43,000 square feet facility located in Industrial Drive in Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania thanks in great part to the Clarion University SBDC.

In January of 2003, Sintergy opened their doors to do metal fabrication in a variety of industries such as, automotive, agricultural, and manufacturing. The company’s officers are Rick Young, president, Jason Emery, vice-president and Steve Miller, chief financial officer. The venture began when Young and Emery quit their jobs to partner with Miller in this new business venture. The three officers worked together previously at Allegheny Powder Metallurgy in Falls Creek.

Six years later, their $2.3 million expansion project was completed thanks to the assistance of the Clarion Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The Clarion Small Business Development Center produced an extensive business plan and financial projections which allowed the company to secure the funding it needed to expand from an 11,000 square foot building to a new 43,000 square foot facility.

As of 2011, Sintergy has grown to 30 employees over their years of operations and looks to add 25 to 27 new employees within the next couple years of their expansion.

Local and State legislators joined Sintergy to celebrate their grand opening. Lucy Ames, business consultant for the Clarion Small Business Development, credits not only the officers of Sintergy but also local legislators and economic agencies for bringing their idea to life. U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson, Howard Brush representing Governor Ed Rendell, Secretary Austin Burke, Senator Joe Scarnati, State Representative Sam Smith, and State Director of the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers, Christian Conroy all offered congratulatory remarks.
