O'Neal's UPM Acquires Titanium Specialist Vulcanium
 
O'Neal Industries, through its subsidiary United Performance Metals Inc., has acquired the assets of Vulcanium Metals, a distributor and processor of titanium for aerospace and defense, medical instruments and other industrial applications.

Vulcanium, which operates stocking facilities in Northbrook, Ill., and Belfast, Northern Ireland, carries a full line of inventory in titanium sheet, plate, block and bar products. It specializes in providing titanium distribution and supply chain solutions to OEMs and subcontractors across the world. In-house processing capabilities allow Vulcanium to perform a variety of first-stage processing operations including leveling, shearing, sawing, machining, facing, chamfering, laser and waterjet cutting.

The addition of Vulcanium complements United Performance Metals' current focus on specialty stainless and high-performance alloys. “The acquisition of Vulcanium is a natural extension of our offering and allows us to deliver greater value to the customers and markets we serve, especially overseas,” says UPM President Tom Kennard.

“We are excited about the opportunity to build upon our success as a member of the United Performance Metals family. Expanded resources and the chance for increased collaboration strengthen our outlook for growth,” says Jerry St. Clair, the president of Vulcanium, who will continue to oversee the company’s operations.
