Pete Varischetti, president of Phoenix Sintered Metals, stated, “The combining of knowledge and resources of these previously separate entities will open up new opportunities and solutions to our current and new customers in a variety of markets.”
Phoenix Sintered Metals, like Catalus, is a family-owned business. Originally founded as St. Marys Carbon in 1939, the company ventured into Powder Metallurgy in the early 1950s, when it began producing powder metal components. SMC Powder Metallurgy was established as a division of the carbon business, later changing its name to Catalus Corporation in 2018.
