About CC Metals and Alloys

About CC Metals and Alloys

On November 28, 1949, a company then known as Pittsburgh Metallurgical, began business as a producer of large-volume commodity ferroalloys for the steel industry. In the early 1980's, when imports started undercutting domestic prices, the company decided that it was time to convert its product line to higher value added specialty ferrosilicons and magnesium ferrosilicon products. With this new direction and later a new name, CC Metals and Alloys began to establish itself as a quality supplier of specialty ferroalloys to the steel and foundry industries.
Located in Calvert City, Kentucky, CC Metals and Alloys is ISO 9001 certified and is a leading manufacturer of ferrosilicons. Below are some interesting facts about our internationally recognized manufacturing facility, which allows us to produce highly customized orders that meet our clients exact specifications:
