ATI Fixes Defective Component At Brackenridge, PA Facility

Metal producing giant Allegheny Technologies (ATI) announced in early October that it had completed repairs to its Hot-Rolling and Processing Facility located in Brackenridge, Pennsylvania. The company initiated the repair process after announcing in May that it had found a defective component in its Rotary Crop Shear, otherwise known as RCS. Despite the issue, production had continued at what the ATI described in a press release as a “rapid pace.” The company stated, however, that because of the issue, projected operating profit benefits from the facility had not been “fully realized.”
