Carpenter's Alabama facility approved for aerospace alloy

Carpenter Technology Corporation announced today that a leading European aerospace engine manufacturer has approved the manufacture of a nickel-based high-temperature alloy at our new manufacturing facility in Athens, Alabama. The Vendor Approved Process (VAP) was finalized on Tuesday.

“We are beginning to see the realization of our vision for Athens, although it is still early in the overall qualification process”

“We are beginning to see the realization of our vision for Athens, although it is still early in the overall qualification process,” said Gregory A. Pratt, Capenter's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “By approving this nickel-based high-temperature alloy for use in its aerospace engines, this leading manufacturer has shown confidence in our ability to meet very stringent criteria.”

Carpenter began operations in Athens in January 2014 and is currently undergoing multiple qualification approvals, some of which take more than 24 months to complete.

The recently approved nickel-based alloy is used in aerospace engine rings.
