Brush Engineered Materials Inc., a supplier of materials to the solar sector and other markets, plans to change its name to Materion Corp. and unify all of its businesses under the new name, effective March 8.
The company notes that its common stock will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange. Concurrent with the name change, the company also will unveil a new website and brand identity.
‘Brush Engineered Materials has transformed over the past 20 years into a very different company from the metals, mining and specialty metals businesses that mark most of our heritage,’ explains Richard J. Hipple, chairman, president and CEO. ‘While these businesses are very successful and integral to our future, they have changed significantly and are now part of a much larger portfolio.’
