RICHBURG – It has not been officially confirmed by the company, but multiple sources have told the Chester News & Reporter that ATI Allvac is going through a round of employee layoffs.
Two people with knowledge of the layoffs, including one employee, indicated that about 70 workers were laid off Monday, Sept. 30.
It is unknown if further cuts are scheduled.
A call to the company’s worldwide headquarters in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Oct. 1, was not returned. An operator at the plant said that all managers were in a meeting and unavailable.
The company’s website bills the company as “a world leader in the production of nickel-based and cobalt-based superalloys, titanium-based alloys, and specialty steels for the aerospace, oil and gas, and medical industries. In these and other industries, where mission critical requirements are identified, our alloys with exceptional wear resistance, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and toughness are exceeding these requirements and solving customer’s problems.”
The Richburg location is Allvac’s only facility in South Carolina, but the company has plants in 17 other states and around the world.
