Keywords: Tags  ATW Companies, Metalform, firearms magazine manufacturing, Tracy MacNeal, Corinna Petry


CHICAGO — Metals fabricator ATW Cos. has relocated its New Britain, Conn.-based Metalform product line manufacturing operations to ATW’s Warwick, R.I., facility.

Metalform’s and ATW’s firearms and defense capabilities—which include precision machining, metal injection molding, laser cutting, precision metal tubing and stamping—have been consolidated, chief strategy officer Tracy MacNeal said in a statement.

Metalform’s capabilities include deep-drawing, stamping and pistol magazine fabrication. Its products include 38-caliber, 45-caliber and 9-millimeter magazines.

Consolidation of manufacturing operations is expected to improve the reliability and quality of Metalform’s magazines and bring a renewed technology focus to new product development, the company said.

ATW precision stamping and tube drawing subsidiary A.T. Wall Co. acquired Metalform in 2011.
