BERMET is a Beryllium Vendor site from 1962-1969 and workers are eligible for Part B beryllium claims.

There is no SEC for BERMET.

Purchase orders from Y-12 indicate that Beryllium Metals and Chemical Corp. (BERMET) did some beryllium work for Y-12, beginning in 1963 and continuing at least through 1965. Beyond that, records indicate BERMET was responsive to an invitation to submit 100 pounds of beryllium metal to the AEC in 1968 for purposes of qualifying for further work, as part of the AEC's beryllium metal study group. According to a May, 1969 memo, BERMET chose not to participate beyond this initial 100 pound qualifying round.

BERMET's corporate successor has indicated that the sale of beryllium to the AEC began in 1962 and continued through 1969.

Beryllium Metals and Chemical did some beryllium work for Y-12 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee beginning in 1963 until at least 1965.  Records also indicate that work may have continued until 1969.
