Revere to Cease Offering Brass Extrusions

Revere Copper Products plans to shut down the extrusion mill at its production facility in Rome, N.Y. The long-time producer will exit the market for brass, brass alloys and extrusions, including C11000, C38000 and C77400, by the end of this year.

Revere is a small player in the brass market and has made the strategic decision to focus on casting and rolling 100-series copper alloys, says Marketing Manager Amy O’Shaughnessy.

The gap Revere’s move makes in the market will mostly likely be met by both domestic and foreign extrusion mills, she adds. “There are other domestic mills that have the capability of producing the vast majority of the brass products that Revere is discontinuing. However, there will probably be a hole in the market when it comes to brass plate. There is much smaller demand for brass plate in comparison to the sheet and strip market.”
