Elmet Technologies, headquartered in Lewiston, Maine, USA, has received the 2023 Governor’s Award for Business Excellence – Heritage Industry Award from Maine Governor Janet Mills. Since its creation in 1991, the annual award has recognised and celebrated local businesses which illustrate a high level of commitment to their community, their employees, and to exemplary performance in the agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, or marine sector.

“It is my honour to present Elmet Technologies […] with the Governor’s Award for Business Excellence,” said Governor Janet Mills. “Through their success in the business world – and direct investments in their employees, their communities, and our state – each of these extraordinary Maine businesses are helping to make Maine the best place in the nation to live, work, and raise a family.”

Heather Johnson, Commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development, added, “The Governor’s Award for Business Excellence celebrates the contributions of Maine businesses to Maine people and our state’s economy. It is one of Maine’s most prestigious business recognition awards, and I congratulate each of these recipients. I look forward to following their continued success.”

Elmet Technologies is a US-owned and operated, fully integrated manufacturer of pure molybdenum and tungsten products. Serving a wide range of markets, the company operates in over 19,510 m2 of manufacturing space at its Lewiston, Maine, headquarters.

Established in 1929 as The American Electro Metal Corporation, Elmet Technologies was known for decades as a leading manufacturer of light bulb filaments, producing more than a billion filaments per year. Today, Elmet produces items such as shaped parts that stabilise aeroplane wings, high-precision components for satellite applications, collimators and electrodes for CT scan machines, and more.

Elmet manufactures tungsten and molybdenum in a variety of forms, such as powder, foil, sheet, rod, wire, cubes, spheres, blocks, bars, and other shaped parts. The company controls every process it employs, including blending powder, pressing and sintering, thermal and mechanical processing, and precision machining.

Last year, Elmet was recognised on an international stage for its key role in manufacturing components that went into the Orion spacecraft affixed to the top of the Space Launch System rocket programme, part of NASA’s Artemis I programme, which successfully launched on November 16, 2022.
