ATI Celebrates Completion of Most Advanced Materials Finishing Operations

April 11, 2024

Vandergrift expansion significant to Specialty Rolled Products transformation

VANDERGRIFT, Pa., April 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- ATI Inc. (NYSE: ATI) celebrated completion of its expansion at Vandergrift Operations – the most advanced materials finishing operations of its kind – at an event attended by government and community leaders. The Vandergrift expansion is significant to ATI's transformation of Specialty Rolled Products to be a leader in high quality titanium and nickel-based alloys. Consolidating production from five other locations across the ATI system created a more competitive flow path at Vandergrift focused on increasing production of high-value, differentiated materials.

"This expansion has unlocked the capabilities of ATI's Specialty Rolled Products business," said Kim Fields, ATI President and Chief Operating Officer. "This team is delivering the advantages our customers are hungry for: best-in-class attributes including thickness, coil size and cycle times, at the shortest lead times in the world. It's another way for ATI to meet the tremendous demand for specialty materials serving aerospace and defense."

Key to the site's expansion is the new bright anneal line, standing 200 feet tall, including state-of-the-art control systems. Combined with ATI's Hot Rolling and Processing Facility in Brackenridge, PA, the bright anneal delivers best-in-the-world coil finishing capabilities at the shortest cycle times. With state-of-the-art temperature control, reduced flow times and the ability to produce thinner and larger specialty coils, this facility allows ATI more differentiating capability to deliver for our customers' end use applications.  The investment in the Vandergrift expansion is included in existing capital expenditure guidance.
