Important Information about GOES Production


The Board of Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI), based in Bagdad, Pennsylvania, released important information regarding the halt of production of grain oriented electrical steel (GOES) to be effective by April, 2016. ATI supplies GOES to several manufacturing companies that are heavily reliant on its production for transformer cores. For more information regarding the happenings at ATI, please visit:

In light of this announcement, Power Partners, Inc. assures its customers that the market conditions at ATI will in no way effect the production or lead time of overhead distribution transformers nor submersible units being manufactured at its facility in Athens, Georgia.

PPI has secured contracts with domestic and highly efficient foreign sources of grain oriented steel. This allows Power Partners, Inc. to continue to service its transformer demands confidently and efficiently. Please direct any further questions or concerns to the Power Partners Marketing team.
