Allegheny Technologies adds specialty parts producer

| Monday, February 10, 2014 10:21 a.m.

Allegheny Technologies Inc. said on Monday it acquired Dynamic Flowform Corp. of Billerica, Mass., for an undisclosed price.

Dynamic Flowform has precision technology that allows unique metal parts to be produced with less waste, such as airplane and jet engine components and oil and gas drilling tools, ATI said. The parts are made from nickel-based alloys, titanium and titanium alloys, zirconium alloys, and specialty and stainless alloys.

Two executives from the founding family of Dynamic Flowform, Matt and Nick Fonte, will join Allegheny Technologies, said CEO Rich Harshman.

The company said the acquisition is expected to immediately benefit ATI’s financial results. “We have identified significant growth opportunities for Dynamic Flowform’s products, especially in the aerospace and oil and gas markets,” Harshman said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
