Appendix I LISTING OF THE INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATIONS IN THE U.S. TITANIUM INDUSTRY The panel' s primary concerns were with national policy matters and it was not within ~ ts scope to make a definitive listing of all U.S. titanium producers and their product areas.a Moreover, given the promi se and vitality of the industry, announcements and rumors of new entries and of expanded scopes are frequent. For the convenience of interested readers, however, major participants in the industry are identif fed below. Sponge Producers Albany Titanic, Inc.--formed by Albany International Industries, Inc., and other American owners; scheduled to begin limited production in late 1982, Albany, Oregon. D-H Titanium Company--jointly held by Dow Chemical Company and Howmet Corporation (a subsidiary of the French Pechiney Ugine Kuhlmann Group) , Freeport, Texas. International Titanium, Inc. (ITI)--began production in April 1982 under joint Japanese (Mitsu! and Company and Ishizuka Research Institute) and American ownership, Moses Lake, Washington. Oregon Metallurgical Corporation (OREMET)--mainly held by Armco Steel Corp (76 percent) and the public , Albany , Oregon. SEMI Company--jointly held by National Distillers and Chemical Corporation and the U.S. Steel Corporation, Ashtabula, Ohio. Teledyne Wah Chang Albany (TWCA)--held by the Teledyne Corporation, Albany, Oregon. Titanium Metals Corporation of America, TIMET Di~rision--jointly held by NL Industries and Allegheny International , Inc., Henderson, Nevada. Western Zirconium Co., Division of Westinghouse Electric Co., Ogden, Utah. Such a compilation would best be provided by a titanium trade association. For a variety of reasons, such an organization does not exist even though such organ) Rations in other U.S. metal industries have proven to be useful. As the industry continues to grow and mature, it can be expected that such a trade group ultimately will be organized . 201
