Company Profile

Towanda Metadyne, Inc. is a manufacturer of Precision High Tech Materials and Components. Metadyne was established in 1984 and located in Elmira, NY. During the first few years of operation, Metadyne devoted major thrust on Research & Development of advanced tungsten and molybdenum alloys. (In the early 1990's Metadyne expanded the product offering to tungsten carbide and specialized in wear and mining applications.) In 1995 Metadyne outgrew its Elmira facility and moved to a newly constructed larger facility in Towanda, PA thus forming Towanda Metadyne, Inc.

Today, Towanda Metadyne's core business is the manufacturing of Cemented Carbide inserts for the mining, construction, lumber, woodworking, deburing and metal removal industries.
