JOHNSTOWN, Pa., May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) is proud to be a sponsor and exhibitor at the upcoming 26th Annual Showcase for Commerce. Showcase is a nationally renowned business and industry trade show and defense contracting exhibition held in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

"Showcase for Commerce is an important event for the defense industry and supply chain members," said Edward J.

"CTC will be highlighting solutions that can make a difference in national security, from increasing warfighter preparedness with the hydrogen fuel cell power demonstrator to building stronger armored vehicles because of our additive manufacturing and coatings capabilities. We are excited to meet with so many key decision makers and contributors in the area of government acquisitions."

U.S. Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. (PA), U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (PA), and U.S. Congressman Keith Rothfus (PA 12th District) will be among the Congressional leaders who will view CTC innovations such as:
