Beryllium Corp. of America (Reading)
Also Known As: Kawecki-Berylco, Berylco, NGK Metals Corp., Cabot Corporation, Beryllium Corp. of America (Tuckerton)
Time Period: 1943 -1979
Facility Type: Beryllium Vendor
Facility Description: In 1947, the Beryllium Corporation plant at Reading produced highly distilled and pure beryllium oxide on a small scale for the AEC. By 1960, the plant focused on alloy and oxide work. In 1961, the plant supplied beryllium parts to the Y-12 plant and produced beryllium powder for the AEC from government inventory beryllium ingots. Although all major Berylco contracts (beyond 1961) and purchase orders reviewed to date show that the final product shipped from Hazelton, it has been clarified that but for the alloy and oxide work performed in Reading, the contracts and purchase orders fulfilled for the AEC by Hazelton could not have been completed.
