Why is 100% US Production for Tungsten Heavy Alloy Important?
US domestic manufacturing for the unique suite of refractory alloys such as tungsten heavy alloys (WHAs) has distinct advantages for domestic customers. These include:
- Meeting New Regulations
Starting in 2019 the US Department of Defense banned tungsten supplied from Russia, Iran, China and North Korea. As the sole US domestic and fully integrated producer, Elmet helps its customers stay compliant with all the latest laws.
- Reduced Cost for Deliveries
Shipping material as heavy as tungsten from Asia is expensive and time consuming. Elmet provides a range of transportation modes and broader shipping windows than international suppliers which result in direct and significant savings.
- Shorter Delivery Times
Container shipping from Asia can take 4-6 weeks
- Shorter Lead Times
Our customers avoid all the delays and risks faced when trying to coordinate delivery from Asia or Europe.
- Ease of Communication
Elmet’s customers reduce their costs and avoid communication breakdowns by working directly with our factory in Maine vs. through resellers and across continents.
- It’s the right thing to do
Our customers directly support and grow a critical segment of the US Industrial Base.
- Higher Standard of Safety & Quality Control
Elmet oversees all operations and provides tight controls over all manufacturing processes. This allows customers to be ensured that all products fit set standards and specifications.
- Direct Access
Most foreign tungsten supplies sell via distributors, which makes managing quality and supply challenges almost impossible.
- Higher Standards of Environmental Stewardship
Elmet prides itself on providing safe and rewarding jobs to its employees, and protecting the environment. Before sourcing tungsten from Asia we encourage companies to visit the factories to see conditions.
Elmet Technologies has been providing its customers with US produced molybdenum and tungsten products since 1929. As an AS9100, ISO9001 and ITAR registered manufacturer, we are continually investing in and expanding our capabilities, portfolio of standard mill products, precision machine components and custom formed products and assemblies.
