Diversifying from building barges

Did anyone see this article on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website?

Short version: A place that once made a lot of coal barges doesn't anymore because demand fell off. So it diversified into other lines of business that require bending and welding metal. And even if the barge business picks up again, it will only do so much of it because it wants to keep and grow the new lines of business it has developed.
