Haynes International – August 3, 2022

Located in La Porte at 3238 IN-39 and started in La Porte in 2017, Haynes International is one of the world’s largest developers and distributors of high-performance nickel and cobalt-based alloys for use in high temperature and corrosion applications. The company’s successful history spans more than a century of products, processes, and most of all, people. Also developed by Haynes is the introduction of many highly regarded nickels and cobalt-based alloys that are used worldwide in the most demanding environments and critical applications for aerospace, power generation, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals and other areas. As space exploration and the development of long term satellites continues, Haynes International serves a critical function in providing materials for each and every mission.

He was a tireless inventor who developed the unique metal alloys that led to the foundation of Haynes International in 1912, and their ongoing  commitment to alloy excellence which has inspired their tradition of innovation.

Haynes International has manufacturing facilities in Kokomo, Indiana; Arcadia, Louisiana; Mountain Home, North Carolina; and La Porte, Indiana. The La Porte Indiana facility performs slitting, stretch leveling, blanking and cut to length operations to Haynes International and other customers.
