AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group NV, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has announced that it will realign its organisational structure effective from January 1, 2019. This change will result in two new strategic operating divisions: AMG Technologies and AMG Critical Materials.

Dr Heinz Schimmelbusch, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of AMG, commented on the change, “AMG Technologies brings together two industry leaders primarily serving the aerospace market, by combining AMG Engineering’s expertise in metallurgical process design & development and AMG Titanium Alloys’ industry-leading expertise in the development of metallurgical products, furnace operations and quality assurance processes. In metallurgy, combining engineering and operational know-how accelerates innovation.”
