Titanium Metals Corporation, or TIMET, founded in 1950, is an American manufacturer of titanium-based metals products, focusing primarily on the aerospace industry. In November 2012, the company was purchased for $2.9 billion by Precision Castparts Corp.(PCC) and now operates under the PCC Metals Group Division.[1] In January 2016, Precision Castparts Corp. became a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.[2]

Its major U.S. operations are based in Morgantown, Pennsylvania; Henderson, Nevada; Vallejo, California; and Toronto, Ohio. Its overseas operations are primarily based in the United Kingdom (in the cities of Waunarlwydd and Witton) and in France (in the village of Ugine). The company's headquarters are located in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

The company is most commonly referred to as TIMET, a shortened version of "TItanium METals" that is a registered company trademark.

In September, 2007, TIMET entered into a ten-year supply agreement with United Technologies Corp (UTC). Under the agreement, TIMET would supply titanium to UTC for commercial and military aircraft and aircraft engines.[3]
