ATI and GE Aviation investing in joint Chester County, S.C., operations

October 10, 2017 - Allegheny Technologies Incorporated and GE Aviation have selected the property adjacent to ATI’s Richburg, S.C. operations as the site for a new research and development (R&D) facility. This joint venture is expected to create 29 new jobs.

ATI is a global manufacturer of technically-advanced specialty materials and complex components and is a market leader in manufacturing differentiated products. ATI is a leader in producing powders for use in next-generation jet engine forgings and 3D-printed aerospace products.

General Electric has invested approximately $1.5 billion in manufacturing and additive technologies since 2010 and is leading the aerospace industry in incorporating additively-manufactured components in the latest generation of jet engines. GE Aviation, an operating unit of General Electric (NYSE: GE), is a world-leading provider of jet and turboprop engines, components, integrated digital, avionics, electrical power and mechanical systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft.

The joint venture between these two companies will develop titanium alloy powders for use in additive manufacturing, utilizing a new meltless alloy powder technology. Construction is expected to begin in 2018 and will be completed in 2019 as the facility becomes operational.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
