PAWTUCKET â€” Is the city's manufacturing past coming back to life? Two companies that used to produce goods elsewhere in the state have recently purchased buildings and relocated to Pawtucket, bringing with them a combined total of about 50 jobs.
Philip Machine Co., a manufacturer of wire formed and stamped metal products, moved into a 21,000-square-foot building at 190 York Ave. in October and has been operating in its new location.
Jeremy Schupp of Pawtucket smokes a cigarette after his Atlas Van Lines tractor trailer crashed into the front of Louâ€™s Cafe on Summer Street in Manville shortly after noon Wednesday. Schupp said he lost control on the steep, slippery, unsanded hill while heading down to Railroad Street on his way to pick up a load on Flat Street. No injuries were reported, and only minor damage to the front of Louâ€™s Cafe.
