Latrobe Specialty Steel Expands in Ohio
The industrial bimetal saw market buys Edgewire, an enhanced value-added, small-diameter, rectangular, high-speed-steel wire. The market, previously served by European producers, includes manufacturers of band saws, hacksaws, reciprocating saws, hole saws and utility knives. Latrobe sources the high-speed steel from its Pennsylvania steel mill. For precision stainless steel wire, Latrobe melts the stainless steel in Pennsylvania, ships it to Wauseon and then draws the wire to the exact standards demanded by its customers in the market for implantable medical devices.
