Sweden’s Höganäs AB will expand its Johnstown facility in Pennsylvania, USA, with the addition of new production capabilities to support Additive Manufacturing and other technologies. The project will include the construction of a 24,000 ft2 building and the purchase of new machinery.

Höganäs’ high alloys plant in Johnstown, originally called SMC Metals Products, was acquired in 2003. According to the company, the decision to expand was taken in response to global demand for its high alloy products.

Dean Howard, President of Höganäs Americas Continent, stated, “This exciting investment, with the greatly appreciated support from the Governor’s Action Team and JARI, will help Höganäs continue to grow in Pennsylvania and provide innovative products for our customers in several quickly developing market areas.”

“Pennsylvania’s powder metals industry is a major contributor to our manufacturing sector,” commented Pennsylvania Governor Wolf. “Höganäs’ decision to expand here is great news for Pennsylvania manufacturing, and will provide at least twenty-five reliable, family-sustaining jobs for Cambria County workers.”

“JARI is pleased to provide support to Höganäs as the company expands their operations in the City of Johnstown,” added Linda R Thomson, President and CEO of the Non-profit Economic Development Organisation JARI. “Höganäs is a world class, internationally recognised company with state-of-the-art products that is meeting the demands of the new manufacturing age.”

    Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

    Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

    The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

    To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
