Materion Corporation, through its subsidiaries, produces and sells engineered materials for use in electrical, electronic, thermal, and structural applications primarily in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The company operates in four segments: Advanced Material Technologies, Performance Alloys, Beryllium and Composites, and Technical Materials. The Advanced Material Technologies segment offers precious, non-precious, and specialty metal products, including vapor deposition targets, frame lid assemblies, clad and precious metal preforms, high temperature braze materials, ultra-fine wire, advanced chemicals, optics, performance coatings, and microelectronic packages used in wireless, semiconductor, photonic, hybrid, and other microelectronic applications within the consumer electronics and telecommunications infrastructure markets, as well as in medical, defense and science, energy, industrial components, and automotive electronics. The Performance Alloys segment provides strip products, such as thin gauge precision strip and thin diameter rod and wire; bulk products, including copper and nickel-based alloys manufactured in plate, rod, bar, tube, and other customized forms; and beryllium hydroxide, a raw material input for strip and bulk products. The Beryllium and Composites segment offers beryllium-based metals and metal matrix composites in rod, sheet, foil, and various customized forms, as well as beryllia alumina ceramic products. The Technical Materials segment provides clad inlay and overlay metals, precious and base metal electroplated systems, electron beam welded systems, contour profiled systems, and solder-coated metal systems. It distributes its products through a combination of company-owned facilities, and independent distributors and agents. The company was formerly known as Brush Engineered Materials Inc. and changed its name to Materion Corporation in 2011. Materion Corporation was founded in 1931 and is headquartered in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.
