AEROSPACE metals specialist IMET Alloys has announced a [euro]10m investment to set up Europe's first aerospace grade titanium processing plant.
The Livingston-based business announced that it is to build and equip the plant at Saint Georges-De Mons, near Clermont-Ferrand in central France.
IMET uses what it says are the most technologically advanced techniques in the world to provide the melters of titanium and superalloys with furnaceready products to melt ingots which are used in the aerospace, oil and gas, power generation and medical sectors.
The new plant will convert titanium generated by aircraft manufacturers and their subcontractors into clean, furnace-ready material.
IMET channels this directly back into the world's titanium melting facilities displacing primary ore and helping create a circular economy within Europe's aerospace manufacturing supply chain.
Chief executive officer Ruaraidh Williamson said: "The facility will be designed and purpose-built by us to handle titanium alloys of today and tomorrow. We will be employing exclusive technologies developed by IMET to cement our position as the processor and supplier of next generation alloys utilised in the latest energy-efficient engines."
