AccuTrex Products President and CEO Named 2020 Pittsburgh Vetrepreneur of the Year

PITTSBURGH – Martin P. Beichner, co-founder, president and CEO of AccuTrex Products, has been named the 2020 Pittsburgh Vetrepreneur of the Year. 

This prestigious award is presented each year to a Pittsburgh area veteran business owner who demonstrates the attributes critical in leading a successful business with sustained growth, and who has a proven track record of giving back to the community. The award is presented by veteran-owned VIQTORY and sponsored by Fort Pitt Capital Group.

“Since 2006, the Vetrepreneur of the Year (VOY) program has put a spotlight on the countless contributions of our nation’s 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses,” said Chris Hale, VIQTORY’s co-founder, chairman, and a Navy veteran. “Vetrepreneurs served once for our national defense, and a second time for our economic well-being. This year’s Pittsburgh VOY, Martin Beichner, is an example of the best our country has to offer. Thanks to him and to Fort Pitt Capital Group for their support of this great program.”

The June issue of Vetrepreneur magazine features Beichner’s journey from Navy corpsman in Vietnam to owner of AccuTrex Products, a leading manufacturer of custom shims, gaskets, stampings and washers with more than 150 workers in two states. Beichner and AccuTrex Products have a long history of giving back to the veteran community, and to the community in general. 

“Fort Pitt Capital Group is proud to be associated with this award and we agree that Marty Beichner could not be a better representative for Vetrepreneur,” said Michael Blehar, founding partner and managing director of Fort Pitt Capital. “He has shown tremendous leadership within his company and in the community. He’s an empathic and thoughtful corporate leader and community champion. It says a lot that his company has never had a layoff in 40 years of business and that he has done so much to help the veteran community and the community at large. We congratulate Marty on this most wonderful achievement.”

Beichner applied what he learned as a Navy corpsman serving with the 26th Marines in Vietnam to the business world: attention to detail, leadership and the ability to think on his feet, among other things. He also gained an appreciation for what most Americans have, which led to Beichner’s passion for philanthropy as AccuTrex grew into a successful enterprise.

“We think that’s important. We’ve always thought that was important. We live in the community, we work in the community, we help support the community. Everybody doesn’t have the same opportunity we do,” Beichner said.
