American Utility Metals is no longer in existence; it has changed its name to Crompion International, which has taken its place in the marketing, stocking and technical support of Cromgard stainless steel. Additionally Crompion is reaching out further internationally and adding new lines of Cromgard steels, products and services.
Our rebranding of American Utility Metals is in direct response to the evolution of our company over the past 12 years, from being strictly a supplier of low-nickel, stainless steels to being a company whose primary focus is offering solutions for our customers to achieve their operational and financial goals.
We wanted to embrace this evolution publicly by renaming our company Crompion International, a name which we felt communicated that we are not the same company we were 12 years ago – we’ve gotten better at creating solutions and meeting needs for our customers across the country and around the globe.
Our new company name is: Crompion (krom-pee-un) International. For years, we have been champions of our flagship Cromgard C12 product. Thus, in choosing our new company name, we fused together the words “Cromgard” and “Champion” to create Crompion International, a name which pays homage to our history and our future as an international leader in the specialty stainless steels market.
“Specialty Stainless Solutions for the Next Generation”

No. Crompion International is being run by the same dedicated team that has served in the specialty stainless steels industry for 12 years. George M. Schaffer continues to lead this company as Founder and President.
We officially changed our name to Crompion International on November 1, 2012.
