CCMA to boost ferrosilicon production

Keywords: Tags  CC Metals and Alloys, ferrosilicon, Thorsten Schier

NEW YORK — CC Metals & Alloys LLC (CCMA) is stepping up its ferrosilicon output in response to rising demand.

"The company is increasing its production of a requested grade of ferrosilicon to meet customer demand," a company spokesman told AMM via e-mail.

However, the spokesman shot down market speculation that the company would be switching its furnaces to step up production of the requested grade.

"CC Metals & Alloys has the capacity to produce different grades of ferrosilicon and has no immediate plans to modify its furnaces," he said.

The Calvert City, Ky.-based company made the move at a time when tight supply has pushed prices for commodity-grade ferrosilicon higher (, March 22).

CCMA primarily makes high-purity ferrosilicon for the steel industry and specialty ferroalloys for the foundry industry.

CC Metals & Alloys LLC is not related to Buffalo, N.Y.-based trading company CCMA LLC.
