Titanium Metals Corporation (TIMET) is one of the world's largest fully integrated titanium producers. Since 1950, TIMET has been leading the industry in mill and melted products, supplying nearly one-fifth of the world's titanium. We convert rutile ore into sponge; melt and refine ingot and slab; and manufacture mill products. TIMET has a global network of service centers supported by its seven primary melting or mill facilities in Henderson, Nevada; Toronto, Ohio; Morgantown, Pennsylvania; Witton, England; Waunarlwydd, Wales; and Ugine, France. With products ranging from sophisticated high temperature alloys used in jet engines, to advanced corrosion resistant alloys used in the chemical industry, TIMET's reach spans the breadth of the titanium applications, and has the technical depth to support developments across a wide range of applications. TIMET's fully integrated supply chain, dedicated research facilities, and decades of experience make us the partner of choice for titanium.
Leveraging advanced electron beam (EB) melting and vacuum arc remelting (VAR), we turn titanium scrap into melted products or intermediate feedstock for both our internal mill production processes and our valued customers around the world. TIMET's toll melting programs provide customers yet another cost-effective outlet for the scrap they generate. Our customers benefit from exclusive, closed-loop agreements to ensure their raw material scrap flows back into their products to further minimize costs. Our advanced electron beam technology allows most forms of scrap to be remelted while ensuring defect free material to be shipped right back into your supply chain.
