Brush Engineered Materials Inc. To Change Name To Materion Corporation

Brush Engineered Materials Inc. (NYSE:BW) today announced it will change its name to Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) and unify all of its businesses under the new name effective March 8, 2011. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Company said it was announcing the new name ahead of the formal name change to give advance notice to its investors, customers, suppliers, partners, the media, and other parties. Concurrent with the March 8 name change, the Company also will unveil a new company website and company-wide brand identity.

“Brush Engineered Materials has transformed over the past 20 years into a very different company from the metals, mining and specialty metals businesses that mark most of our heritage,” said Richard J. Hipple, Chairman, President and CEO. “While these businesses are very successful and integral to our future, they have changed significantly and are now part of a much larger portfolio. Through these changes, acquisitions and other internal initiatives, we have expanded into a brand new 80-year-old company at the forefront of technologies essential to our customers. We are a leading global producer of advanced materials and services providing enabling technology solutions for customers in the fastest-growing segments of long-term global growth markets, including consumer electronics, telecom infrastructure, defense and science, industrial and commercial aerospace, energy and medical.

“As we have grown, our businesses continued to operate under original names and brand identities. That has made it difficult to position the Company as a single, unified organization. We find that even some long-time customers are not aware of the full scope of our capabilities.”

Hipple added, “We are often competing against large global players that enjoy strong brand recognition. With annual sales of more than $1.2 billion and growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 17 percent since 2002, we have the resources and critical mass to participate successfully at that level. We expect to benefit from the recognition that comes from one name and a single strong brand.”
