ETREMA Products, Inc. (EPI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Edge Technologies, Inc., is the sole U.S. supplier of
Terfenol-D, and was established in 1987 to primarily commercialize the product, Terfenol-D,
and transfer its technology from laboratory discovery to industry. At the same time, the technology for
producing Terfenol-D was fully transferred from Ames Laboratory to ETREMA Products, Inc., granting EPI
the technique to start small-scale production of the material.
In 1993, EPI built a world class facility in Ames, Iowa with the ability to house, develop and manufacture
Terfenol-D. EPI is a high-tech Iowa corporation engaged in the development and commercialization of the "Smart Material", Terfenol-D. EPI currently has the only facility in the world capable of producing commercial quantities of Terfenol-D. EPI
also holds the exclusive license for Terfenol-D production.
It is EPI's mission to achieve worldwide leadership in high technology products and systems based on smart
material technology. In taking this multi-industry enabling technology to the edge, ETREMA has created
three key business areas. They are Terfenol-D material sales, manufacture of devices powered by Terfenol-D
and engineering services to assist customers in the development of new products based on ETREMA Terfenol-D®.
