Metadyne Inc., originally located in Elmira, New York, was established in 1984. During the first few years of operation, the company devoted the majority of its efforts to the Research and Development of advanced tungsten and molybdenum alloys. By the early 1990's Metadyne had expanded is product offering to include tungsten carbide and began to specialize in wear and mining applications. In 1995 Metadyne outgrew its Elmira operation and moved to a newly constructed facility in Towanda, PA thus forming Towanda Metadyne, Inc. The new plant not only expanded the press and sinter capacity but also added zinc reclaim and spray-drying capabilities. Towanda Metadyne continued moderate growth over the next twenty years, and then in 2015 the company doubled in size through two major investments. It constructed a new state-of-the-art tungsten carbide reclamation facility, which positioned the company to be the largest processor in the US. Secondly, a new division was formed with the acquisition of a Gulfport, Mississippi plant that had been a leader in the tungsten carbide rod business for over 30 years. Metadyne Gulfport LLC expanded the company's production capability and distribution footprint. The corporate headquarters for the family of companies resides at the Towanda location.
