Governor Wolf Announces Expansion of Tram Bar Co-Packing, Creation of 30 New Jobs in Blair County SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Economy, Jobs That Pay, Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced that Tram Bar Co-Packing LLC, who will manufacture energy bars for Kate’s Real Food of Jackson, Wyoming, will construct a new manufacturing facility in Allegheny Township, Blair County, creating 30 new food manufacturing jobs over three years.“Southcentral Pennsylvania has become known as a corridor for snack food creation, and it’s exciting to see the industry expanding into Blair County,” Governor Wolf said. “The 30 good-paying jobs created by Tram Bar Co-Packing will not only support families, it will build on the growing momentum of the economy in the Altoona area.”Initially this facility will produce the full line-up of energy bars from its new location in Allegheny Township. The company also plans to market its services to similar companies who desire to hire a co-packer to produce food products similar to the energy bar produced for Kate’s. To complete the expansion, the company will acquire 1.2 acres at 131 Lamppost Lane, Allegheny Township, and construct a new 20,000 square foot facility. The $5.1 million investment also includes the purchase of new machinery and equipment. The growth will create 30 well-paying jobs within three years.“The biggest obstacle that we face at Kate’s is our limited production facility located in Victor, ID. We can only produce a limited number of bars at that location annually. With our expansion into the grocery store market through The Touch Agency and other venues we will need to produce millions of bars annually,” said Bruce Thaler, Co-Owner of Kate’s Real Foods. “This move will expand our production and improve the Blair County economy. The Governor’s Action Team has been great to work with on this project.”Kate’s Real Food produces hand-rolled, organic energy bars in six flavors. The company’s signature energy bar, the Tram Bar, was produced by founder Kate Schade as fuel for days skiing from the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram located near her home in Wyoming. With this new facility in the Altoona area the company will be able to produce millions of additional bars per year to meet the growing need for distribution to large grocery chains, Amazon, specialty stores, ski areas, convenience stores, bicycle shops and for sales from its website.“This is great news for the First Frontier Blair County. Kate’s Real Food business culture and product aligns really well with our growing outdoor lifestyle which is increasingly defining our mountain town,” said Stephen McKnight, president and CEO of the Altoona Blair County Development (ABCD) Corporation, which assisted in coordinating the project. “On behalf of our board and directors, I would like to thank Gov. Wolf and his team for their involvement in this project. ABCD Corporation was happy to assist and are looking forward to welcoming Kate’s Real Food team and the new jobs they will create in our community.”Tram Bar received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $75,000 Pennsylvania First Grant, $90,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs, and $11,700 in WEDnetPA funding to support worker training. The company was also encouraged to apply for up to $2,650,000 in low-interest loans through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA). The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.For more information about the Governor’s Action Team or DCED, visit dced.pa.gov, and be sure to stay up-to-date with all of our agency news on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Assets under management of Italian institutional Investors rose by 6.47% year-on-year in 2019 to €917.36bn, according to a report published by think tank Itinerari Previdenziali.Institutional investors – including Industry pension funds (fondi negoziali), pre-reform funds (fondi pre-esistenti), banking foundations and casse privatizzate – saw total assets increase by 7.14% to €260.68bn in 2019 compared to €243.30bn the prior year.This segment of institutional investors, however, recorded a contraction in assets managed by external asset managers through mandates. According to the report, €95bn was managed through mandates in 2019 compared to €112bn in 2018.AUM for institutional investors including open pension funds, holders of individual pension plans (PIPs) and insurance companies grew by €38.27bn to a total of €656.57bn last year. In particular, PIPs recorded a €4.78bn (15.57%) growth and open pension funds’ assets rose by 16.4% to €22.84bn. These assets make up 14.6% of the Italian GDP.Assets of industry pension funds, pre-reform funds, supplementary health funds and banking foundations hiked by 82.5% in the last 13 years, from €142.85bn in 2007 to €260.68bn in 2019.The share goes up to 51.3% considering assets of insurance companies, open pension funds or holders of individual pension plans (PIPs).The number of institutional investors decreased by 2.2% year-on-year in 2019 to 807, including 86 banking foundations, 20 casse professionali privatizzate, 33 industry pension funds and 235 pre-reform funds, the report disclosed.The share of individual pension plans also dropped to 111 from 113 in 2018 and 128 in 2015.Additionally, the number of people enrolled in Italian pension funds stood at 8.2 million, even though the pensions regulator COVIP noted that “open contracts” with pension funds amount to over 9 million, up from 7.9 million in 2018.ReturnsReturns across all institutional investors have been positive last year, with industry pension funds recording 7.2%, pre-reform funds 5.6%, open pension funds 8.3% and PIPs 12.2%.Institutional investors face the challenge of beating “target returns” this year, amid the consequences of the pandemic, volatile equity markers and geopolitical tensions, according to Itinerari.Investors have started to change asset allocation strategies, with increasingly specialized and high value-added management, often not linked to benchmarks but to performance objectives.The increase in investments in alternative investment funds and real assets is part of this strategy, it added.Investment in the domestic real economy by institutional investors is still “modest”, with the exception of banking foundations which deploy 44.36% of total assets in Italy.Casse privatizzate invested 21.36% in the domestic real economy, followed by pre-reform funds with 4.8% and industry pension funds with 3.42%.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.

RelatedPosts Oyo: Only 7,000 out of 67,000 applicants for teaching job scored 50% in CBT Makinde: Alternative Project Funding Approach working for Oyo State Makinde installs new Alamodu of Ago-Amodu The Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, has been commended for his straight and practical approach to grassroots soccer development in Nigeria with the success of the maiden edition of Sunday Dare Grassroots Soccer tournament, which came to an end on Sunday in Ibadan, Oyo State. A sports enthusiast and grassroots politician, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan, gave the commendation at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium in Ibadan on Sunday. Olaosebikan declared that Nigeria and Oyo State would benefit immensely from the minister’s hands-on synchronisation of sports development across the country. Speaking to journalists at the end of the tension soaked final that saw Ogo Oluwa/ Surulere Team defeating One Ibarapa Team by a lone goal to lift the trophy, Olaosebikan stated that the personal involvement of Dare in mobilizing, hunting and discovery of talented soccer players from the hinterlands would give the nation, states and local government areas the best in terms of performances and quality of sporting infrastructure. Olaosebikan, who was a member of the first executive committees of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria in Oyo and Niger States, said: “This is leadership by example. As the Minister puts conducive structures and policies in place to encourage organizations and well endowed individuals to partake in the development of sports, he is personally walking the talk by using his hard earned money to lift soccer and players at the grassroots. This is profound! “In a very brilliant way, Sunday Dare has synchronised his three point agenda for an all round sports development in Nigeria with the introduction of Adopt An Athlete programme for the promotion of welfare and progress of athletes all over the country; Adopt A Game programme for the development of all the games and Adopt A Stadium programme for accelerated rehabilitation and further development of our stadia. “To the hard work, zeal and commitment of the cerebral minister, the programs have started yielding fruits with major African business players including the richest man on the continent, Alhaji Aliko Dangote acceding to rehabilitate MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja. This is indeed a new dawn in our sports development. With Sunday Dare, we are getting there steadily. He deserves our encouragement and support.” For two weeks, talented football players from across the 14 federal constituencies of Oyo competed for the SD Trophy, engendering opportunities for display and discovery of talents among the abundant latent soccer talents in our local areas. Not just mere playing and winning trophies, the Minister mobilised influential ex-international footballers to the opening of the tournament in Ogbomosho and its final at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan. In what many referred as an excellent strategy, the ex-international players were there not just to watch and discover talents, they were brought in by Dare to mentor the local players, most of whom saw the ex-Super Eagles stars physically for the first time at the tournament. Chief Festus Onigbinde, the best indigenous coach ever in Nigeria, led the pack and was at the stadium throughout the tournament, while Daniel “The Bull” Amokachi was the cynosure of all eyes. Amokachi was hailed, hugged and took hundreds of selfies with players and spectators. The newly appointed Assistant Coach for the Super Eagles, Joseph Yobo, was obviously on duty throughout as he was busy watching and making notes. The Headmaster, Mutiu Adepoju, Ike Shorumu, Felix Owolabi and others joined to mentor the local players who displayed dexterity of the round leather game.Tags: Kehinde OlaosebikanObafemi Awolowo StadiumOyo StateSunday DareSunday Dare Grassroots Soccer Tournament
Although United did not respond to the intense speculation that took hold on Tuesday night, for a company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, it is impossible to imagine reports that such a senior figure is considering his position can go for long without some kind of response. Indeed, the longer the club leave it, the more credence it gives to speculation the 71-year-old is ready to stand down and end his amazing 26 years at the helm. At the very least it heightens the uncertainty that has come from a succession of stories that caused Ferguson’s status to be questioned in a manner never previously witnessed. Press Association Manchester United are expected to offer some kind of clarification on the future of manager Sir Alex Ferguson on Wednesday. Only last weekend, in his programme notes for Sunday’s Premier League defeat by Chelsea, Ferguson insisted he was intent on carrying on indefinitely. Basking in the triumph of his 13th Premier League title, he said: “This team of champions is not going away – we are here for the long ride. We will get better and if we apply ourselves in our normal fashion I see our 20th league title as nothing but the start of another decade of success. “Whether I will be here to oversee another decade of success remains to be seen, but I certainly don’t have any plans at the moment to walk away from what I believe will be something special and worth being around to see.” However, chatter over his future dates back 12 months to the nosebleeds he suffered at a dinner in his native Scotland, which caused him to be taken to hospital. Although Ferguson himself insisted there was no problem, having been told he had taken too many short flights by the United team doctor, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan pointedly claimed this season would be the Scot’s last. Ferguson subsequently failed to travel to pre-season matches in Sweden and Germany and also sat out a mid-winter training camp in Qatar. Then, last week, United privately confirmed Ferguson had been booked in for hip surgery in August, after the club’s pre-season tour, which involves trips to Thailand, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. It seemed strange timing given the former Aberdeen manager could have had whatever procedure he requires immediately. Repeatedly over the last few years, Ferguson has said his health would be the key to his own longevity. On Monday night, there was a massive gamble on David Moyes to join United in the summer, with further speculation that he would leave Everton to become Ferguson’s assistant.
Jackson compiled a career high with 22 rebounds but couldn’t generate offense consistently with Detroit packing it in down low. Taking a page out of Northern Iowa and Canisius’ playbooks, the Titans worked the defensive game plan to near-perfection in the first half, allowing just eight points in the paint. Boeheim said he’s concerned and is looking for his players to step up and make open shots. ‘Our offense can click at any time,’ Jardine said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Though Jardine shined in the second half, the team as a whole struggled. Before the intermission, the Orange converted on just 7-of-32 from the field (21.9 percent), including 2-for-17 from beyond the arc. ‘We’re better than this. Whoever said we’re overrated, you can’t listen to those people,’ Boeheim said, joking about his comments following a win over Canisius Sunday. ‘We were definitely overrated in the first half tonight. I think if we take the second halves we’ve played, we’re not overrated.’ Jardine also converted on a career-high four shots from behind the arc, including two during SU’s initial stretch to start the second half. Published on November 15, 2010 at 12:00 pm ‘If Scoop didn’t just pull us up by the shoulders tonight and take the game over, we’d have no chance to win,’ Boeheim said. ‘Absolutely no chance.’ After losing the team’s two best shooters in Wes Johnson and Andy Rautins, Boeheim is looking for someone to step up and shoot with consistency. Until then, he expects the Orange to struggle. ‘Pretty soon we’re going to play someone who can make a shot,’ Boeheim said at the podium after the game, ‘and we’re not going to win that game.’ Detroit played the majority of the first half in a zone defense, daring Syracuse to fire away from the outside. Until Jardine got hot and the Titans were forced to switch to a man-to-man defense, the strategy worked. Beginning with a simple jumper to start the second half, Jardine guided the Orange on a 17-4 run in under seven minutes, scoring 12 on 5-of-5 shooting during the stretch. Through the first 10:44 of the half, Jardine either assisted or scored on all nine of SU’s field goals. Jardine drilled a momentum-changing jumper from behind the arc at the 19:34 mark of the first half, and the Orange never looked back. All Scoop Jardine needed was 26 seconds to find his niche. Twenty-six seconds to pull Syracuse out of a halftime deficit. Twenty-six seconds to take over a game in which Detroit appeared to have the Orange on the ropes. Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments email@example.com Despite a third consecutive double-digit win, SU head coach Jim Boeheim wasn’t pleased with the lack of consistency between the first and second halves. Each of SU’s first three games began in a similar fashion: a slow start followed by an impressive finish. It’s a trend Boeheim said he believes the Orange will continue to see with opponents until it proves it can hit an open jump shot. That’s what he sees as the reason for the first-half struggles. Led by Jardine, Syracuse again overcame a slow start with a second-half surge, beating Detroit, 66-55, in front of 17,379 at the Carrier Dome on Tuesday in the regional round of the Legends Classic. Jardine scored 17 of his career-high 27 points in the second half, to go along with eight assists and five steals on the night. ‘I took what the defense gave me, and the ball just went in for me today,’ Jardine said. ‘There are going to be games where the ball doesn’t go in for me, and my teammates will have to pick me up, and tonight I just picked them up.’ ‘Scoop really carried us tonight,’ senior forward Rick Jackson said. ‘The first half we were really struggling, scoring, and he kept us in there with his scoring. He hit a lot of big shots.’

All while barely having anything to eat.The 2014 consensus All-American was the most high-profile addition to this year’s team but his arrival for the opener was in doubt. In the practice gym before the game, Eric Devendorf wanted updates from general manager Kevin Belbey on Fair’s whereabouts. “Where’s C.J. at?” he asked.Belbey, nervous himself, reassured Devendorf that Fair would arrive on time despite speculation earlier in the afternoon that he’d miss the game. He entered the doors at Philadelphia University shortly after 6:30 p.m. in a tank top, shorts and backward hat, before putting up a stat line far from indicative of someone who had every reason to be drained. Fair scored 13 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 21 minutes as second-seeded Boeheim’s Army cruised to an 87-59 victory over No. 15 seed Basketball City NYC on Saturday night in the first round of The Basketball Tournament.“I mean I got a broken foot but when I saw him I still gave him a big chest bump,” Belbey said of his reaction when Fair arrived. “I was checking out the D-League schedule for weeks … selfishly I’m a little happy the Blazers didn’t win the championship because they’d be playing Monday night.”“He’s still nervous,” Devendorf chimed in with a smile at the postgame press conference.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFair scored a team-high nine points in the first half, courtesy of three field goals that came from beyond the arc, midrange and on the low block.
