Fanti USA, an Italian-based manufacturer, celebrated the start of building renovations for its new production facility on Wednesday, March 30, at the company’s future building at the Half Moon Industrial Park in Weirton. State and local dignitaries joined company executives for the presentation of golden hammers, signifying the start of the renovation process. The project was first announced by Governor Justice in November 2020.
“The addition of this company and the renovations of this facility align well with the trajectory our state is on this year,” said West Virginia Department of Economic Development Secretary Mitch Carmichael. “Being the home of a company’s first United States facility is a great honor and we are excited that Fanti USA says ‘Yes, West Virginia.’”
