On Nov. 24, during the 12th annual Team Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards Luncheon at the Boston Renaissance Hotel, Kennametal’s Greenfield facility received a silver award for its contribution in promoting business growth in Massachusetts.

Kennametal, which is known for manufacturing high speed steel blanks and solution taps, was selected for this award after visits and a review from MassEcon judges.

The review allowed Kennametal to present its attributes in the categories of job growth, facility expansion, investment, and community involvement. Kennametal invested $4.2 million in renovations and equipment, and has expanded to accommodate 70 additional employees.

Kennametal received a small plaque as a recipient of this award.

“We are honored to be recognized by MassEcon and the community with this award,” said Lindsay Fennell, senior corporate communication specialist.
