Meeting Growing Demand for Beryllium as Worldwide Supplies Tighten

Materion, the world’s only fully integrated beryllium supplier, with approximately 70 years of proven mine reserves, is well positioned to serve customer demand in the wake of a rebalanced global supply. Only Materion supplies the open market with a meaningful volume from freshly mined ore. China mines a small fraction of its own production, while production in Kazakhstan is sourced from a Cold War-era stockpile, now rapidly diminishing. To better meet global demand, Materion has increased production capacity at its processing plant in western Utah, while also continuing to advance beryllium conversion and processing technology.
