Two Western Pennsylvania businesses are among three inaugural awardees of a state grant meant to spur innovation in high-tech manufacturing.

Accutronic, based on Washington's Landing, and ExOne, of North Huntingdon, will get a state grant of between $50,000 and $75,000 to fund a graduate student researcher from Carnegie Mellon University, Gov. Tom Corbett announced on Tuesday. Paramount Industries, of Langhorne Industries, was the third recipient of the Research for Advance Manufacturing in Pennsylvania award.

ExOne and Paramount are additive manufacturing firms — a type of manufacturing also known as 3D printing. Accutronic makes precision motion simulators, navigation systems and stability control systems.
