Senior Research Metallurgist


We, as employees of Deringer-Ney Inc., are very proud of our Company.  We are privileged to work with products of high value and criticality across a wide range of industries.  Our team also values the tradition of excellence that has allowed us to continuously operate for over two centuries. It is our belief that the future of Deringer-Ney is only as bright as the people we hire; therefore, we take great care in the individuals we select for employment.  We continuously seek new ideas and better ways of servicing our customers and our employees, and improved ways of doing business.  After enjoying recent expansion, we plan to continue that trend. 
We are a private enterprise with family ownership that is keen on investing in future growth.  Long-term innovation in metallurgy is key.  Being a vertically integrated component manufacturer, we are a major consumer of our own metal products.  Control over synthesis, processing, and properties of DNI-made materials is therefore crucial to our overall success.  
If our culture sounds like something you would enjoy being a valuable part of, we would like to hear from you.
