What Bert Has To Say About Pittsburgh Metro Area

Once a rough and gritty center for the steelmaking industry, Pittsburgh is now home to one lone blast furnace and a wide assortment of other industries. Pittsburgh has a tremendous base of headquarters operations for U.S. and some foreign companies in a variety of industries from banking to food processing to steel and heavy manufactured goods to pharmaceuticals. These include Alcoa, HJ Heinz, PNC Bank, PPG Industries, Mellon Bank, US Steel, Allegheny Technologies, Wesco, Bayer North America, GlaxoSmithKline, American Eagle Outfitters, General Nutrition Centers, and more.
