About Eutectix:

Eutectix LLC manufactures metal alloys and alloy powders at its facilities in Troy Michigan and Tolleson, Arizona. In addition to its manufacture of bulk metallic glass alloys, Eutectix produces samarium-cobalt and iron-neodymium-boron rare earth magnet alloys, various superalloy rods for further fabrication into welding wire, various alloys for hydride batteries and hydrogen fuel storage, and master alloys as ingredients for superalloy and alnico magnet production.

Eutectix LLC was founded in 2014 via the acquisition of the Great Western Technology manufacturing facility in Troy, MI. The facility had originally been created by the Ovonic Battery Company subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. to develop and manufacture alloy powders for the early nickel metal hydride batteries. Subsequently, the entire manufacturing facility of Molycorp Metals and Alloys in Tolleson, AZ, historically focused on manufacturing rare earth magnet metals and alloy powders, was acquired in 2016.
