LATROBE, Pa., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- During its Analyst Day event, Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) today shared detailed plans for integration synergies expected as it combines the Tungsten Materials business acquired from Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: ATI) with Kennametal's Industrial and Infrastructure segments.
Kennametal completed the $605 million transaction on Monday, Nov. 4.
