The Stewards of Sustainability

Momentive Performance Materials

Momentive Performance Materials was established as a brand in 2006, the result of the coming together of four different companies—including GE Advanced Materials—under one name in the silicones space. From its beginnings in private equity, Momentive developed its own unique brand name, culture, and positioning in the chemical industry over the ensuing decade-plus. Today, Momentive is potentially the only remaining pure silicones player in the world, according to Chief Technology and Sustainability Officer, Thanos Yiagopoulos.

Bringing Canadian Mining Solutions to a Global Market

Mining Innovation Commercialization Accelerator (MICA) Network

When it comes to the future of mining, Mining Innovation Commercialization Accelerator (MICA) Network Director Chamirai Nyabeze says that the industry has become closely tied to the future of the planet itself. This is being driven by multiple factors including the transition toward green energy in mining, a global desire for a low-carbon economy, and ongoing demand for the minerals and metals that make the conveniences of modern life possible. Nyabeze emphasized mining’s role in addressing climate change and climate goals at the recent COP2 event held in Dubai.

Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is entering its third decade of operations as the foremost organization dedicated to supporting both businesses and owners in the Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador). ACOA rang in a new year alongside a remarkable new development for its home base. In March 2023, and with the endorsement of 17 former premiers and deputy premiers of the Atlantic provinces, the PPF (Public Policy Forum) commissioned a report titled the Atlantic Canada Momentum Index. In short, this report gives credence to an ongoing theory that, currently, Atlantic Canada is seeing a considerable upswing in key areas—at times, more so than any other part of the country.

Chick Machine Company

Chick Machine Company is celebrating its 52nd anniversary as one of Pennsylvania’s most well-known and reliable machine shops. The company’s story began in August 1971, with its namesake Jim Chick realizing his vision on roughly 300 acres near the city of Butler, part of rural western Pennsylvania. The business was an idea Chick had after he left a machining position in the area to pursue his fortunes. This decision coincided with a business venture by friends of his, who had just started a local precision laser company, now a multi-billion-dollar outfit in nearby Saxonburg.
