Paris Air Show debut for IMET Alloys


Date Published: 03/06/2013

An ambitious Scottish company specialising in the control and management of superalloy and titanium from the aviation industry is targeting new global markets by exhibiting at the prestigious Paris Air Show for the first time.

IMET Alloys, which has bases in Livingston, West Lothian, and the United States aerospace industry hub of Monroe, North Carolina, provides materials management solutions helping companies control their superalloy and titanium scrap, known in the industry as “revert”.

The company is backed by Scottish-based Coralinn Private Equity, the investment vehicle of Caledonian Alloys co-founder Hugh Stewart OBE. Mr Stewart is non-executive chairman of IMET.

From its European base in Livingston, IMET currently works across the aerospace, oil and gas and land-based turbine manufacturing industries in Europe and is constantly looking to expand its presence. CEO Ruaraidh Williamson said exhibiting at the International Paris Air Show next month was an ideal platform for introducing the company to a wider range of potential customers.

Mr Williamson said: “Working throughout the superalloy and titanium manufacturing supply chains and after useable life markets, IMET maximises the value of material to the generator, offers the mills a cost saving over the prime raw material and helps to conserve precious natural resources.”

Although only formed in 2011, IMET’s team are some of the most experienced in the industry, with backgrounds combining melting, manufacturing, recycling and raw material management. The company has been adding new talent through the Scottish Enterprise Talent Scotland Graduate Placement Program.

Hugh Stewart said: “IMET Alloys is an exciting new business with several unique offerings for the aerospace and oil and gas supply chains.  The people, relationships and systems have been developed to allow corporates to drive value to their business. 

IMET Alloys is also a powerful example of people development.  Ruaraidh Williamson was the first member of the Caledonian Alloys Graduate programme.”

The company will be represented at the Paris Air Show, which takes place from June 17-20, by Mr Williamson, and General Manager of European operations Stephen Dickson.
