StartUp West Virginia Manufacturing Program – Participant Spotlight

TechConnectWV and RCBI announced the first class of StartUp WV Manufacturing on March 5, 2012.  Below is a spotlight on another of these innovative and entrepreneurial businesses – Craft Totes by Bell.

Based in Dunbar, West Virginia, Craft-Totes by Bell designs and produces a specialized line of industry-specific tool carriers. The company is working to streamline its manufacturing processes and improve workplace ergonomics by inventing specialized tool totes to meet those needs.

The StartUp West Virginia program will allow Craft-Totes to use RCBI and its technologies to assist in designing and prototyping a basic tote that can be adapted for electricians, plumbers, and miners.
