CTC facilities reopen

JOHNSTOWN — Life was slowly returning to normal Wednesday at Concurrent Technologies Corp. in Richland Township following an all-day shutdown Tuesday by federal investigators.

Employees returned to work and  all department’s operations continued, spokeswoman Mary Bevan reported in a brief emailed statement.

“Our Johnstown facilities reopened today,” Bevan said. “All operations have resumed as normal.”

CTC President and CEO Edward J. Sheehan Jr. was among guests at the Flight 93 National Memorial remembrance ceremony near Shanksville.

The scene was quite different Tuesday, as agents from the Department of Defense investigation service, Internal Revenue Service and Air Force special investigations swooped down on both CTC facilities in the Johnstown Industrial Park.

Employees were turned away at parking lot entrances, while company executives were chaperoned by agents into the building where search warrants were being executed.

Investigators would not say what the agents were searching for, and CTC leadership denied any knowledge of the probe’s subject.

David J. Hickton, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, issued a statement Tuesday saying the raid was part of an ongoing federal investigation. No additional information was forthcoming on Wednesday.

“There will not be any more information released today,” spokeswoman Margaret Philbin of Hickton’s office said in response to The Tribune-Democrat’s inquiry. “We cannot comment beyond that.”

“We don’t have anything new to report,” Bevan said.
