Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation is a specialty steel manufacturer headquartered in Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[1] It is one of several companies to bear the Ampco name, and it should not be confused with the Chicago based Ampco Metal Inc. copper base alloy producer, the Miami-based cabinetry company, the Swiss aluminum corporation, or the Dallas-based tool company. Ampco was formed in 1929 and is a conglomerate made up of several different previously established small steel makers. Five small companies operate under the Ampco umbrella in two different product segments.

The subsidy offers a variety of grades of thickness and hardness for the product. Davy Rolling Company, a former British corporations, creates cast rolls, heavy duty roles, and specialty rolls.

The Air and Liquid Processing Segment of the company contains Aerofin, Buffalo Air Handling, and Buffalo Pumps.[2] Aerofin creates steel coils for use industrially in power plants and oil extraction and commercially in automobiles, and heating/cooling systems. Under Buffalo Air Handling, metal plating, parts, and fans for huge ventilation and refrigeration systems are manufactured. Buffalo Pumps is the maker of a variety of pumps for various industries.

In 2008, their chairman & CEO, Robert Paul, became a minority partner in the Pittsburgh Steelers, purchasing a minority stake in order to keep controlling ownership within the Rooney family.[3] Paul and his family acquired a 16% stake in the team as part of the deal, though the Rooney's will remain as primary owners.
