Gov. Tom Wolf was in State College on Tuesday for a panel discussion and town hall forum on congressional redistricting, but he also found time to make another stop during his visit to the Centre Region.

To recognize AccuWeather's 55th anniversary, Wolf toured the global weather forecaster and media company's headquarters on Science Park Road.

President and Chairman Joel Myers, who welcomed Wolf on the tour, founded AccuWeather as a consulting business in 1962 when he was a graduate student in meteorology. Its global headquarters have remained in the State College area as AccuWeather has grown to become the largest source of weather forecasts and warnings and a leader in digital media for weather. 

AccuWeather reaches nearly 2 billion people through virtually every communication platform and serves 245 of the U.S. Fortune 500 companies, 78 of the Fortune 100 global companies and thousands of other businesses and government agencies.

The company recently was recognized as Company of the Year by the Pennsylvania Acceleration Awards, which "honor organizations and leaders that are driving technology and innovation across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania."
