Universal Stainless Restarted Operations at Bridgeville Melt Shop

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. announced that it has resumed operations at its electric arc melting facility at its headquarters facility in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania during the month of May, as scheduled. The melt shop has now returned to full operating capacity.

It must be noted that the operations were affected by a metal spill that occurred in April this year, caused by a breakthrough at the bottom of a furnace shell. There were no injuries or environmental impacts due to the spill. Also, all other operations, including product delivery schedules remained unaffected, the company had said.

Commenting on the development, Dennis Oates, Chairman, President and CEO, Universal Stainless noted that the company is extremely pleased to have its melt shop back online and running. The restart was accomplished on schedule, despite substantial clean-up and other challenges. The company has started to catch up the lost melt time and remains fully committed to meeting the needs of its customers, he noted. The business conditions continue to remain strong, Oates added.

Established in 1994, the company manufactures and markets semi-finished and finished specialty steels, including stainless steel, nickel alloys, tool steel and certain other alloyed steels.
