Morgan Technical Ceramics Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Auburn Site

May 30, 2012

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.
