TYLER - When Amega West closes its Tyler facility in the next couple of months, 60 employees will lose their jobs.

The local facility will close permanently sometime between April 21 and May 5, according to William J. Rudolph, Jr., director of corporate communications for Amega West’s parent company, Carpenter Technology Corporation.

“Approximately 60 employees are impacted by the closure, which was prompted by current business conditions and the need to centralize our operations to improve efficiencies,” Rudolph said last week in an email.

In 2011, Carpenter Technology Corp., an international precision metal fabrication company, acquired Amega West Services, LLC, with plans to expand its Tyler facility.

Amega is a Houston-based manufacturer and service provider of complex components for directional drilling equipment. After acquiring it, Carpenter expanded Amega’s manufacturing capacity at its Tyler facility, as well as the rental fleet and the footprint of the company’s five North American service centers.
