SMC Powder Metallurgy changes name to Catalus Corporation

Catalus’ furnaces are equipped with atmosphere controlled sintering capabilities and can sinter up to 1300°C

 

SMC Powder Metallurgy, headquartered in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, has changed its name, officially becoming Catalus Corporation on October 1, 2018.

SMC began as a division of St. Marys Carbon, founded by the late J E Lanzel, Sr. in 1939. The carbon business and Powder Metallurgy business became separate companies in 2008 and the change of name is aimed at helping distinguish between the two. “There is no change in our ownership,” stated Steve Lanzel, President and CEO, “Our company is not for sale and is not on either side of an acquisition. Catalus will remain the same family owned business ready to break new ground in the powder metal industry.”

Commenting on the name change, Dave Parsons, Vice-President of Sales, added, “We changed our name to Catalus Corporation to convey the catalytic impact our new operations can now have on our customers’ success.”

In late 2017 SMC Powder Metallurgy Inc. began construction of a second manufacturing site, a new state-of-the-art Powder Metallurgy manufacturing facility at the St. Marys Airport Industrial Park.  All current manufacturing is done at their plant in Galeton, Pennsylvania.

“In addition to manufacturing product, Catalus will begin doing more research and development work at the Galeton location,” added Amy Schutz, Business Development Manager. “Early next year corporate headquarters will relocate to the new building and future expansions of our manufacturing capabilities will take place there as well.”
