Magna-Tech Hires New Engineer

Magna-Tech P/M Labs, a provider of research and development and testing services as well as consulting services for the materials world, has named Katherine Small as its new Project Engineer. Mrs. Small, who previously was a Materials Engineer at Carpenter Technology, will be in charge of managing and increasing Magna-Tech’s customer base. Magna-Tech, which is mainly focused on research and development, is looking to expand its business to include a carburizing and nitriding surface treatment of metals. At this time Magna-Tech is awaiting the patent on this process. Katie will bring a background of new product management and marketing. As a metallurgist for Carpenter, Mrs. Small was in charge of the metallurgic needs of Carpenter’s customer in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions of the USA. Her extensive knowledge of the metals community will be a great asset in the expansion. Mrs. Small has a BS in Materials Science and Engineering from Lehigh University.
