SINCE - 1992
Preform Specialties, Inc. was formed in 1992 to provide specialty tungsten carbide preforms to industrial clients. Since its inception, PSI has built a reputation for delivering a high quality and competitively priced products. Tungsten carbide’s unique properties allow it to outlast and outperform tool steel under a variety of challenging conditions. In applications where tools are subjected to extreme wear, heavy loading, and rough conditions, tungsten carbide does the job. .
In 1999, some of the partners in Preform Specialties, Inc. purchased the former Metal Carbides Company located in Youngstown Ohio. Renaming the company Carbide Metals, Inc., the partners set out to restore the reputation of the old Metal Carbides Company as a major supplier of carbide blanks and rod extrusions. Carbide Metals, Inc. moved to Blairsville, Pennsylvania in 2002, where today it operates in partnership with Preform Specialties from a modernized, state-of-the-art facility.
