NEW YORK — Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI) has appointed John Sims executive vice president of its High Performance Forgings and Castings business, the company announced Sept. 19. He will remain executive vice president of the company’s Primary Titanium Operations and Engineered Alloys units.

Sims also was named president of the Pittsburgh-based company’s ATI Ladish division, succeeding Gary Vroman, who plans to retire effective Dec. 31. In his new role, Sims will oversee ATI Portland Forge, which is being integrated from ATI’s Engineered Products segment into ATI Ladish in order to "improve operating and manufacturing efficiencies," the company said. ATI Portland Forge will be included in ATI’s High Performance Metals segment’s third-quarter earnings report.

Sims also will oversee ATI’s tungsten materials division until the company completes its recently announced sale of the business to Latrobe, Pa.-based Kennametal Inc. (, Sept. 16). ATI said it expects the sale to be completed in the fourth quarter.

Sims, who has worked at ATI since 1996, was named executive vice president of Primary Titanium Operations and Engineered Alloys and Products in February.
