Beaver County Energy & Advanced Manufacturing Day


James C. Kirsch

Employer: Steamfitters Local 449
Job Title: Organizer
High School: South Side Beaver

When I was at South Side Beaver High School in Hookstown, I honestly never knew what I wanted to do.  The only thing I knew was that the college path was not for me. I joined the Army Reserves immediately after graduation and took the Steamfitters aptitude test the following spring when I returned.  I was very fortunate to be accepted to the Steamfitters Apprentice program and have been extremely thankful ever since. Looking back after nine years in the Army Reserves and 16 years in the Steamfitters Union, I don’t think I could ever picture myself doing anything else.

My Job Title of “Organizer” means that I am responsible for recruiting and marketing. What to learn more about my job and others with the Steamfitters? Feel free to contact me at
