Royal Metal Powders to double its workforce

February 9, 2011

Copper powder producer Royal Metal Powders Inc., based in Maryville, Tennessee, USA, plans to double its workforce in the first half of 2011. 

A report in Blount County’s The Daily Times stated that Royal Metal Powders’ initial plan was to employ 20 workers at their site in Maryville, but the company now plans to double that during the first half-year of operation. The company hopes to expand to 60 to 70 employees in the coming years.

The Blount County facility, a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Chemet, uses water and air atomization technology for production of copper powders, copper alloy powders, pre-alloyed bronze and premixes. The plant is ISO 9001 certified.

In June 2010, American Chemet announced the purchase of the manufacturing assets of the cooper-based air and water atomizing and facility formerly owned by US Metal Powders Inc., and previously known as US Bronze Powders Inc.

American Chemet also has manufacturing facilities in East Helena, Montana, USA.

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.
