Starting on May 25, 1954, the Bridgeport Brass Company had a contract with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) to operate the extrusion plant designated

The Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa) site in New Kensington, Pennsylvania was one of 14 facilities in the early 1940s that produced nuclear fuel for the X-10 pilot plant reactor in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and the production reactors at Hanford, Washington. Alcoa used a unique welding process to "can" and seal uranium slugs produced by these other facilities. During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
