Perryman Company, based in Houston, Pennsylvania, has announced a planned expansion intended to support long term strategic growth.
The company has supplied titanium wire and bar for additive manufacturing applications for the past 10 years. Products include wire for direct feed as well as wire and bar used to produce titanium powder.
Now, the company has purchased approximately 35 acres of land and buildings located adjacent to the company’s current headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Houston, PA.
Frank Perryman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Perryman Company said, “The vision for Perryman to maintain sustainable growth has been in place since 2008. At its core, is the commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and to be ready to support them in advance of their requirements.”
“Our strength as a fully integrated titanium producer uniquely positions us to support the growth of this emerging industry. Our aim is to ensure there’s a reliable, high quality source of supply.”
Perryman is also working with partners including Sciaky to develop raw material specifications for the EB wire used in the Sciaky electron beam additive manufacturing system.
Key drivers for the company are the Aerospace and Medical industries, and the new campus will be dedicated to supporting growth in these sectors.
“Technology advancements in materials are occurring simultaneously with advancements in new aircraft design and orthopedic procedures. This campus will be dedicated to supporting Perryman’s growth opportunities in these and other industries,” said CEO Frank Perryman.
Since 1988, Perryman Company has grown from their Pennsylvania base to include offices in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, London, Zurich, Tokyo and Xi’an. The company offers ingot, bar, coil, fine wire, net shapes, and hot rolled products.
With this latest investment, Perryman anticipates they will be in position to support current and future growth for the next 10-15 years.
