Special Melted Products is pleased to announce the appointment of Claire Rowley as Commercial Manager. She has joined at a very exciting time following the Mutares Acquisition earlier this year and will contribute to the growth of SMP as it continues to extend business activities. Claire brings experience in a broad range of international market sectors, including aerospace, oil and gas, defence and nuclear industries. Her career began in 2003 with Firth Rixson and she has spent the past 19 years working within the forging and metals industry, in a commercially focused role.

Welcome to the team!

In response to OEM demand for a material that is cost competitive, high strength and gives excellent corrosion resistance, SMP have redeveloped their standard Staballoy material. By adding a ESR melt step to the manufacturing process the corrosion and fatigue properties are enhanced, whilst attaining a minimum yield strength of 140 ksi. 734 is now successfully used in bottom hole assemblies by a major oilfield service OEM. This is a great example of how SMP works collaborative with customers and end-users to find solutions for the most challenging issues.
