Our specialty metalsAerojet Rocketdyne Specialty Metals is organized around value delivery principles that are a perfect match for high-value, metals-based applications:


All aspects of business are guided by rigorous adherence to our quality systems. Aerojet Rocketdyne uses critical metrics and continuous improvement efforts to aggressively drive down costs, minimize the risk of quality escapes (>99.9% component and assembly acceptance rate) and ensure on-time delivery (99.7% on-time delivery).


Our Specialty Metals

Aerojet Rocketdyne's investment in skilled labor is unmatched in the industry; fully 26% of the workforce is comprised of degreed-technical staff. Every employee is trained in Six-Sigma techniques; 30% of the workforce is certified at the green belt level for Six-Sigma; and we have three certified black belts in Six-Sigma on-site.


Modern equipment with advanced controls provide an unprecedented degree of process capability. The technical staff is fully capable to develop custom-equipment and automation in order to reduce touch labor, resulting in higher throughput, lower cost, and improved quality.


Optimization is ensured by approaching business from an applications, versus commodity, basis. Aerojet Rocketdyne can competitively produce large volumes or high value runs of standard tungsten heavy alloys, or numerous other materials, perform detailed subassembly, joining, and finishing operations, and provide custom testing and qualification prior to shipping your product.


Customer service is handled by a technical staff that has years of experience on the production floor and in the lab, so you can be assured of reaching an optimal solution quickly.


Aerojet Rocketdyne engineers will work with you to make incremental design improvements on existing products or assist with design for manufacturing aspects of new products to ensure you get the best performance and greatest economy. If no material exists for your applications, Aerojet Rocketdyne has the facilities and expertise to jointly develop a solution that will solidify a competitive advantage for years to come.
