Stacy Garrity, Vice President of Government Affairs and Industry Liaison at GTP, explained that GTP manufactures parts used by the United States Department of Defense as well as parts and material for oil and gas drilling heads, tungsten powders for tool manufacturing, and parts for satellites. Tungsten manufacturers in China flood the market with “artificially low priced” tungsten products and cause a decline in the purchase and use of American-made tungsten products, Garrity continued.
Congress has already passed a law that prohibits the Department of Defense from purchasing tungsten metal powder and tungsten heavy alloy products manufactured in China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran.
“This has been very helpful, not only to GTP, but also to other U.S. manufacturers of tungsten products,” she said.

US. Congressman Fred Keller and Representative Tina Pickett and their teams then toured Global Tungsten & Powders' Towanda headquarters.
