HISTORY OF EXPERIENCE
Duraloy has been a technology leader in engineering, design, research and the development and production of high-alloy heat-resistant castings since Thomas R. Heyward, Jr., founded the firm in the 1920's. Duraloy was the first foundry in the U.S. to centrifugally cast high alloys for the metal-producing, heat-treating and petrochemical industries. Duraloy, as the industry leader in alloy development, was also the first foundry to add niobium to the traditional HP alloy to produce what is now an industry standard - the MO-RE 10® alloy.

TRADITION OF NEW IDEAS
Duraloy utilizes both static and centrifugal casting methods to produce our parts.

Exceptional patented and trademarked alloys developed by Duraloy, such as the MO-RE® family of heat resistant alloys, 22H® and Super 22H®, are still worldwide industry standards for heat resistant alloys and the alloys of choice for many heat resistant applications. And the process of adding new, exceptional heat resistant alloys continues today. With the addition of the alloys Supertherm®, the TMA® family of alloys and now with the addition of our exclusive license for Nickel Aluminides, Duraloy continues to be the leader in supplying new alloys to the industry.
ISO 9001:2008 and PED Registration
Duraloy's ongoing investments - in people, equipment and quality systems - continues to pay off. The company received its initial, 3-year ISO 9001:1994 registration in July, 1997, and was then re-audited and re-registered in July of 2000, in accordance with ISO 9000 requirements. Duraloy was the first U.S. foundry to be ISO 9001 registered. Today, Duraloy continues to improve and keep up with the current quality standards, as shown by our passing the transition audit to the new, updated, ISO 9001:2000 quality system standards in June of 2003. Duraloy was then re-audited and re-registered, as part of the requirements for maintaining ISO 9000 registration, in June of 2006.
Duraloy was then audited again in September of 2010, to
upgrade our registration to the standards of ISO 9001:2008.
All of these registrations are the result of an extensive procedure documentation system that was developed and implemented by Duraloy's employees and audited to ISO 9000 requirements by SRI-Quality Systems Registrar of Wexford, PA. It is a hard-earned achievement and Duraloy must be re-audited at regular intervals to insure continued compliance.
By achieving ISO 9001 registration, and maintaining ISO 9001:2008 registration, Duraloy's customers are assured of consistent and reliable product; continuous process, and therefore, product improvement; and the assurance of management's commitment to the highest quality standards.
In the spring of 2005, Duraloy had their facility
initially registered to the new European Pressure Equipment Directive (or PED) standard. By achieving registration to this standard, which is being applied to all pressure containing equipment installed in the European Community, Duraloy demonstrates that they are truly a world-class supplier, capable of producing high quality components acceptable in all parts of the world.

Integration of the former Electroalloys Corp.
and new manufacturing equipment
Following its acquisition in 1994 by the Park Corporation of Cleveland, Duraloy began moving ahead into the next century with new management, a dedicated work force and extensive financial resources. Our growth and expansion continued when, in 1999, the Park Corporation closed the Electroalloys Corporation facility in Elyria, OH., and merged all of the manufacturing, engineering, and technology from Electroalloys into the Scottdale, PA., production and engineering facility. Then, in 2005, Duraloy purchased the manufacturing assets of the former Ultra-Cast, Inc. and integrated these assets into our Scottdale facility, greatly increasing both our production facilities and capacity.
The new Duraloy blends the best equipment from all three facilities, with over 120 years of engineering, manufacturing, equipment and know-how, to form a world-class design, engineering and manufacturing organization. Duraloy today is a strong, viable, international supplier of a wide variety of specialty cast alloys, products and assemblies.
Today, Duraloy is a vibrant, growing company, proud to be a world leader in the production of specialty castings and assemblies. Our dry tunnel furnace rolls are widely recognized as the best in the world.
And with the introduction of Duraloy's proprietary MO-RE 2150®,
we our helping our customers see millions of dollars in gas
savings. (Learn more about
our CSP Dry Rolls). Our petrochemical components and assemblies are installed in furnaces world-wide. And, with our affiliation with
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funded technology development groups, like Oak Ridge National Laboratories, for alloys like Nickel Aluminides and the new TMA®-4701 and TMA®-6301,
(click here to find out more about our
projects with the U.S. Dept. of Energy), and a strong in-house commitment to new manufacturing and alloy developments, Duraloy is positioned to maintain our world-wide leadership position.
Duraloy has successfully blended our long
history of outstanding technology and alloy development with
strong, global sales and marketing support to re-establish
Duraloy as an innovative world-wide leader serving the steel,
furnace builders, petrochemical and commercial heat treating
industry with cost-effective quality products, leading-edge
alloys and innovative engineered solutions.
