RTI Canton Ohio Power Outage

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RTI International Metals, Inc. (NYS: RTI) , experienced a fire yesterday in an electrical transformer at RTI Alloys in Canton, Ohio. There were no injuries and no damage to any manufacturing equipment or customer products. Management is currently evaluating this situation with the local power supplier to determine when power can be reestablished, which should occur before the end of this month. This incident will not impact titanium mill product shipments. However, the third quarter operating income for the Titanium Group may be negatively impacted by approximately $1.25 million to $1.75 million.

RTI Alloys performs melting operations similar to those undertaken at RTI Niles. All manufacturing activity currently scheduled for RTI Alloys will be shifted to RTI Niles which has the capacity to accommodate this temporary shift. Consequently, management expects no impact to any customer delivery schedules.
