Perryman adding titanium forging capabilities to California campus
Perryman Co., an integrated titanium producer headquartered in Houston, Pennsylvania, is expanding its manufacturing capabilities.
The company, which is No. 26 in the Business Times’ list of largest Pittsburgh-area manufacturing firms, is adding a 4,500-ton open die forge press and finishing facility to its Perryman Melt Campus in California, Pennsylvania. This will allow Perryman to produce all of its titanium products in-house. The company said that with the expanded capability, it will be able to broaden its range of products. It will support Perryman’s customers in the aerospace, medical, military and industrial markets.
Perryman Co. is ranked at No. 33 on the Business Times’ most recent List of Largest Pittsburgh-area Private Companies. The company has three manufacturing campuses in Pennsylvania in addition to its headquarters, and it has sales offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
“The decision to invest at this time reflects the confidence we have in our markets,” Frank Perryman, president and CEO of Perryman Co., said in a release. “Demand for titanium aerospace turbine and structural materials is predicted to strengthen in the next two to four years and we will be ready to support this growth.”
The company said construction on the new operations will begin in July of this year. It expects the equipment will be fully installed and operational by the second quarter of 2024.
