In 2005, Allegheny Ludlum agreed to pay a US$2,375,000 penalty to settle a lawsuit brought by the U.S. Department of Justice on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency, which alleged that Ludlum had unlawfully discharged oil and other pollutants, such as chromium, zinc, copper, and nickel, into the Allegheny and Kiskiminetas rivers in the suburbs of Pittsburgh.[12]

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently listed Allegheny Technologies as the 26th-largest corporate producer of air pollution in the United States, with approximately 590,000 lb (270,000 kg) of toxic chemicals released annually into the air.[9] The corporation has also been identified as a potentially responsible party in at least ten Superfund toxic waste sites.[10] For example, Allegheny Ludlum's Natrona and Brackenridge, Pennsylvania, plants contributed to the waste at the ALSCO Park Lindane Dump—an EPA Superfund site. These plants also released chromium into the air, which adversely affected air quality at schools in the Highlands School District.[11]

Environmental record

The company also has plants in: Illinois; Indiana; Ohio; Kentucky; California; Utah; South Carolina; Oregon; Alabama; Texas; Connecticut; Massachusetts; North Carolina; Wisconsin; Shanghai, China; and several facilities in Europe.


Allegheny Technologies is headquartered in Downtown Pittsburgh at Six PPG Place. Steel mill plants throughout Western Pennsylvania include facilities in Harrison Township (Allegheny Ludlum's Brackenridge Works), Vandergrift, and Washington.

Allegheny Technologies debuted its ATI 425 Titanium Alloy on June 14, 2010, at the land and air-land defense and security exhibition Eurosatory in Paris, France.[8] The ATI 425 Titanium Alloy is developed and provided by ATI for markets that include aerospace, defense, industrial, medical and recreation.

ATI 425 Titanium Alloy

  • HighPerformance Materials, which includes titanium-based alloys, nickel-based alloys and superalloys, zirconium and hafnium.
  • Flat-Rolled Products, which includes titanium and titanium alloys, nickel-based alloys, specialty alloys, duplex alloys in sheet, strip, and plate form, grain-oriented electrical steel .
  • Engineered Products, which includes various tungsten products, forgings, castings and precision processing.

Allegheny Technologies, Inc., produces many specialty metals products for both domestic and international markets. The company organizes its products into three segments:


In 1987, Allegheny Ludlum had its first public offering, but the present version of the company, Allegheny Technologies, was formed by the combination of Allegheny Ludlum Corporation and Teledyne on August 15, 1996. The company has since spun off several subsidiaries as independent public companies such as Teledyne Technologies and WaterPik Technologies in 1999,[3] to concentrate on its core business of metal and alloy production. It also sold its World Minerals subsidiary to French company Imerys in 2005. ATI has had a consistent history of strategic acquisitions, notably Wallingford Steel in 1935, West Leechburg Steel in 1936, Jessop Steel in 1994, the assets of Lukens Washington Steel in 1998,[4] J&L Specialty Steel in 2004,[5] and most recently Wisconsin-based Ladish Co.[6] to expand its offerings in the aerospace sector. The company has self-funded approximately $1.8 billion in capital investments between 2004 and 2009 and now believes it has world's newest and most advanced processing paths for its specialty metals, particularly for titanium and titanium alloys, nickel-based alloys and superalloys, zirconium and hafnium, and other specialty alloys.[7]

In 1939, the merger of Allegheny Steel of Pittsburgh and Ludlum Steel of Watervliet, New York created Allegheny Ludlum Corporation; the merged company represented the manufacturers of steel for New York's Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and for the Model A Ford. Through the 1970s, Allegheny Ludlum periodically cooperated with Ford to build several one-off promotional cars with stainless steel bodies. Three such cars are on display in the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum.
