Specialty metals producer Allegheny Technologies Inc. has moved its headquarters designation from Six PPG Place in Downtown Pittsburgh to Dallas, Texas.
The announcement was made unceremoniously in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The filing also noted that the company had shortened its name to ATI Inc.
“We adopted the name most of you know us by because while the challenges we solve are difficult, our name doesn’t have to be,” the company said on its website.
ATI spokeswoman Natalie Gillespie said late Wednesday that the headquarters switch “has little impact on our 1,500 employees in Western Pennsylvania.”
“None are being asked to relocate,” she said in an email. “We are committed to maintaining a strong presence in Pittsburgh. In August, we’ll move [from PPG Place] into a new enterprise resource center, a progressive workplace in the Vision on 15th Street in the Stirp District that’s designed for our team’s needs.”
The company announced in 2021 that it had signed a long-term lease to take about 20,000 square feet of space in the nine-story office building in the Strip being constructed by Burns Scalo Real Estate. That’s about half the space it now occupies at PPG Place.
The headquarters move to the Lone Star State “[provides] the company with an independent, centralized headquarters location that is expected to strengthen the company’s strategic focus and support the independent functioning of its other hubs,” the company said in the SEC filing.
