MSA Preps for Centennial Celebrations

A gathering of current and retired employees will celebrate the milestone at Pittsburgh's Heinz Center.

SAN ANTONIO -- This year's calendar has flipped to June, and the enthusiasm is palpable among employees of MSA who are participating in the 2014 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Expo here this week. June 14 is the big day -- the 100th anniversary of MSA's founding by two engineers who developed a safer alternative to miners' hats that utilized a flame.

Now, MSA has introduced another breakthrough: the ALTAIR 2XP gas detector, which according to MSA allows for quick bump tests anywhere, without bottled gas.

The company is inviting current and retired employees to a centennial celebration in the Heinz Center in downtown Pittsburgh, with at least 1,700 people expected to attend, and the June 3 cocktail hour it is co-sponsoring with AIHA also will include recognition of MSA's big anniversary, said Trish Luedtke, an MSA senior marketing copy writer, during a tour of MSA's booth in the AIHce expo.
