Industry Names Street in Honor of Philip Marcellin

The Legacy of the Long-time Public Servant Lives On

City of Industry, CA – Today, the City of Industry City Council unanimously approved the renaming of a street in the new Industry East Business Center Development. The street will be named “Marcellin Drive” in honor of former councilman Philip Marcellin. Coincidentally, the item came before the Council on the anniversary of Marcellin’s passing, 12 years ago.

Marcellin was an engineer and worked for National Engineering for many years. When National Engineering closed in 1985, he began working for CNC Engineering. He worked for CNC Engineering from 1985 to 2007. Throughout his career, Marcellin worked on several projects in the City of Industry, which today, represent the foundation for the City as we see it today.

“Everyone who knew Philip knew how much of a great person he was,” said Industry Mayor Cory Moss. “From his commitment to his job and his commitment to public service, he was truly a hero for the City.”

Marcellin served on the City of Industry Planning Commission from 2003 to 2005 and the Industry City Council from 2005 to 2007. While serving on the City Council Phil represented the City as a member of the Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments from 2005 to 2006.

Marcellin’s grandson Mathew Hudson now works as a Project Manager for CNC, succeeding his grandfather. 

“My grandpa was very passionate about the City of Industry and did whatever he could to make it an enjoyable place to work and visit,” said Mathew. “In talking to folks who served with him on the ACE Board, they mentioned he never missed not one meeting – that is how dedicated he was. I am proud to continue my grandfather’s legacy at CNC and in the City and proud that his name will now always be remembered in the City that he loved.”
