- THE MAGAZINE
Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) recently announced the 50th anniversary of its Auburn, Calif., site, which has grown from its beginnings in a garage to become a key supplier of engineered structural ceramic components used in the medical instrument, analytical equipment, power generation, and aerospace markets. Current MTC Auburn operations began in 1962 as R&W Products, founded by Will Rogers and Bob Wire in a garage in Redwood City, Calif. The firm moved to the foothills of the Sierras in 1978, becoming the first high-technology company in Auburn. It was later purchased by Carpenter Technology, a U.S.-based specialty alloy company. In 2008, the company was acquired by the Morgan Crucible Co. Plc and became a part of its Morgan Technical Ceramics business.
Since becoming part of MTC, the Auburn site has continued to expand its production of custom-made, high-precision ceramic components. The vertically integrated Auburn facility provides complete solutions to its customers, beginning with green machining and firing materials in-house and carrying the process through to the finished product, which could be a metalized product or a brazed assembly.
