Carlos M. Cardoso, CEO of Kennametal Inc. in Unity, was appointed on Thursday to the Department of Commerce's Manufacturing Council. Kennametal makes machining tools for the manufacturing industry.

The council advises the department on policies that affect U.S. manufacturing and global competitiveness. Cardoso joins Gregory W. Booth, CEO of Zippo Manufacturing Co. in Bradford, as Pennsylvania's representatives on the 26-member council.

“We know that a healthy manufacturing sector correlates directly with the well-being of society and the promise of the American Dream,” Cardoso said.

Manufacturing employed about 12 million Americans in 2012.

“The council has an important role to play in shaping the direction of our nation's manufacturing strategy,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank.
