preparing to meet the master alloy manufacturing requirements
for ingots used to manufacture gas turbine engine equipment,

alloys will be produced to the specifications of our customers
in the aerospace and energy industries," Luzzatto said. "With
this capability, Chromalloy is fully positioned and vertically
