When founder Gary Reed retired in 2015, the company was purchased by the employees through an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP). Today Tech Met is a 100% employee owned company. The core company values based on honesty, fairness, performance and hard work will be perpetuated by the remarkable men and women of Tech Met. Gary's wish was that the company stay true to its culture and customer commitment.

Providing solutions and processing in the handling of super alloys which led to a variety of work for various technology oriented firms such as Wyman Gordon, General Electric, Rocketdyne, Avco Specialty Materials and Bettis Atomic Labs.
A complete facility relocation and renovation was undertaken in 2012. This providing 45,000 square feet of manufacturing space with 21,000 square feet dedicated to chemical milling “wet” processes.
