The project will add 100 million pounds of additional annual capacity to Sapa’s total casting operations, including Cressona, Spanish Fork (UT), Delhi (LA), Yankton (SD), and Toronto, Canada.

Taking a little over a year to complete, the Cressona casthouse features casting equipment dedicated to specialty alloys that will allow for a faster, more efficient product changeover.

The equipment includes a single melt furnace, a tilting holder, and cast pit.

The Cressona plant produces speciality products for markets including commercial transportation, automotive, defence, industrial-consumer and thermal management.
