International Business Development
The Pittsburgh region is a globally connected center for advanced manufacturing, energy, financial and business services, health care and life sciences and information and communications technology. Some 400 international companies call the region home – among them organizations like Alstom, Ansaldo, BASF, Bayer Corporation, LANXESS, Philips Respironics, Siemens, StarKist and Westinghouse Electric Co. to name a few. These companies employ 53,000 + people in the region. Add to that, the more than 1,000 locations abroad operated by Pittsburgh-based companies and you begin to get a picture of the region’s global business ties.
In the U.S. and around the world, Pittsburgh is more than a name on a map, the region is a destination of choice. The Financial Times publication, fDi, recognized Pittsburgh as a top “Americas City of the Future” – a place where a vibrant urban core is at the heart of the 10-county Pittsburgh region with all the assets global companies need to succeed:
