Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:ATI) announced today that it has acquired Hanard Machine, Inc. (“Hanard”). Located in Salem, OR, Hanard performs precision machining on parts and components made from titanium alloys, nickel-based alloys and superalloys, aluminum, specialty steel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Hanard’s major markets are aerospace and defense, and oil and gas/chemical process industry. The business will operate as ATI Cast Products, Salem Operations, and be a part of ATI’s titanium investment casting business, which is located in Albany, OR, approximately 40 miles south of the Salem operations. “The acquisition of Hanard Machine is consistent with our strategy to create value for our customers and stockholders by expanding our capabilities to produce finished specialty materials parts and components,” said Rich Harshman, ATI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With this acquisition, ATI is now integrated in the production of titanium investment castings from titanium sponge to precision machined finished parts. “We have identified significant growth opportunities for ATI’s integrated titanium investment casting business. With this acquisition, we believe ATI is better positioned to achieve our goal to at least double the revenue of ATI Cast Products within the next five years. “The acquisition reinforces ATI’s important aerospace supply chain role.
