National Museum of Industrial History Announces Corporate Partnership with PPL


BETHLEHEM, PA – The National Museum of Industrial History (NMIH) is pleased to announce that PPL Corporation has joined its annual Corporate Partners program with a generous contribution of $10,000.

PPL Electric Utilities Regional Affairs Director Carol Obando-Derstine and Senior Manager of Corporate Relations Lissette Santana presented the check to NMIH President and CEO Amy Hollander.

"At NMIH, we seek to preserve America's industrial past and the innovations of today to inspire the visionaries of tomorrow" said Hollander. "PPL's contribution and partnership will help ensure we can continue to educate our visitors and engage the next generation of inventors and achievers.

PPL Corporation was born in 1920 when eight utilities with 62 power plants serving central and eastern Pennsylvania merged into a single company called Pennsylvania Power & Light Co., which today is headquartered in Allentown, Pa. Today, PPL is one of the largest companies in the U.S. utility sector with seven high-performing, award-winning utilities. They serve 10 million customers in the U.S. and United Kingdom and are dedicated to supporting the communities in which they live, work and serve.

"The support and participation of our industry leaders is essential to our mission," said L. Charles Marcon, NMIH Chairman of the Board. "We are pleased to count PPL, an organization with its own rich industrial heritage and a profound commitment to this community, as a partner."

"The success of PPL as a company is tied to the success of all the towns and cities it serves," said Santana. "We're proud to support organizations such as NMIH, whose vision inspires us and whose work is helping to bring to life the connection between industry and the community."
