Ellwood Specialty Metals is a fully integrated producer of a wide range of specialty tool steels. Our ExELL™ grades are made with advanced ASEA-SKF steel making capabilities which include an ultra high powered electric arc furnace with subsequent state of the art ladle refining and vacuum degassing equipment for the most complete and modern ladle metallurgy technology.

The end result is premium quality steels without premium pricing. This quality level rivals ESR/VAR cleanliness with extremely tight chemistry control for predictable properties and heat treat response. Supplemental ESR remelting can also be supplied.


Our steel making expertise and capability is further enhanced from a long forging history with optimum forging and heat treating practices to develop very special material characteristics of product uniformity, cleanliness, machinability, polishability, strength, toughness, hardenability and other steel properties. All this from production facilities certified to ISO 9002.

Our aluminum products are equally designed for optimum performance without extra cost. We stock a broad inventory of tooling plate as well as cast block, all manufactured to exacting standards by our suppliers. We feature premium products from Gleich, among others.
