Founded in 1856, Morgan Advanced Materials is a global leader in the production of engineered advanced materials, including ceramics, specialty brazing alloys, composites and carbon. Key end-use markets for Morgan’s products include petrochemical, electronics, energy, healthcare, industrial, transportation, and security and defense. From medical instruments, aerospace, power generation and satellite communications to body armor, trains and fire protection systems, Morgan’s components have proven to be key for many of the modern world’s sophisticated devices and equipment.
Morgan’s manufacturing facility in Coudersport, Pa., was established in 1959 as a satellite to the St. Marys-based Pure Carbon, a division of Stackpole International. Acquired by Morgan in 1995, the plant manufactures carbon-based materials, as well as a variety of silicon carbide parts, many in high volume. Products include mechanical seal faces and sliding axial and radial bearings with sizes ranging from less than 0.035 in. to over 20 in. in diameter. This Morgan location also produces silicon carbide ceramic tiles, which are key components in both personnel and vehicle armor.
