August 2013 - Penn Stainless Products has announced a collaborative partnership with "Dr. Metals", Hira Ahluwalia, Ph.D., scientist, metallurgist, materials and corrosion consultant to some of the world’s largest industrial consortiums, and president of Material Selection Resources, Inc.  This collaboration will add significant technical expertise and field experience for Penn Stainless Products customers in key areas such as corrosion analysis, material selection and testing.  Dr. Metals has served as chairman of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers and is a recipient of that organization’s Distinguished Service Award. He has published over 20 articles.  

According to Penn Stainless president, Jim Seward, "Domain expertise is highly critical, given the technical and metallurgical challenges facing many of our customers.  We are a service center that believes in providing material solutions – not just raw materials."  Seward added, "Dr. Metals has lengthy experience in dealing with corrosion and related metallurgical topics for multiple industry segments.  We are very excited to have his considerable breadth of knowledge to support our customers."

Dr. Metals will assist Penn Stainless and its customers with more demanding specification requirements and technical processes. "I look forward to working with Penn Stainless Products and their customers. With their large inventory of corrosion resistant stainless steel and nickel base alloys it is clear that Penn Stainless plays an important role in supplying materials for corrosion processes for many different industries," Dr. Metals said.  "Selecting, specifying and fabricating corrosion-resistant alloys correctly ensures long term reliability and reduces the cost of corrosion."
