Opportunities Abound for Provincial Tourism

Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick

The Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick (TIANB) is the premier organization for the assistance and benefit of both tourism and hospitality in its eponymous home province. The association is now celebrating its 40th anniversary, having gotten its start in September 1983 under its original name, Hospitality New Brunswick Inc. Before that, only a couple of local hoteliers and restaurateurs were registered on the patent, but the association was eventually incorporated under its current name in 1991, both to bring it up to speed with more modern organizations and to operate under a broader umbrella.

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.
