Terves broke ground on a 12,000-square-foot expansion to its magnesium foundry in Euclid, Ohio. The H3-classified magnesium metal-processing facility expansion enables Terves to further expand its heat-treatment, metal-processing, machining and storage capabilities. Plans include additional permanent-mold and materials-handling space, as well as the addition of die-casting, sand-casting and squeeze-casting capabilities for custom magnesium and magnesium alloys and composites.

The expansion will enable Terves to support aerospace and defense magnesium applications in addition to its leading position in the dissolvable oilfield tool market.
