Submitted Article

On Thursday, Sen. Gene Yaw joined PA Treasurer Stacy Garrity and state Rep. Tina Pickett for a tour of Global Tungsten & Powders in Towanda.

A leading Western manufacturer and supplier of tungsten powders and semi-finished parts, GTP has roots dating back to 1916. The Towanda manufacturing facility has more than 500 dedicated employees and annual sales in excess of $300 million. Treasurer Garrity is a former vice president at GTP.

The company produces ammonium paratungstate (APT), tungsten oxide, tungsten metal powder (WMP), Tungsten Carbide (WC), ready-to-press grade powder (RTP), and semi-finished parts.

The company is planning a construction project that will entail demolishing the three old buildings and replacing them with a new modern plant. All three products will be made within the new plant.
