Monday February 15, Revere made the following announcement in the American Metal Market regarding a change in business direction:
Effective immediately, we will focus exclusively on the casting and rolling of 100 series copper alloys, discontinuing production of brass & brass alloys, as well as all extruded product.
Revere has demonstrated for over two centuries its strength & quality while producing copper bar, sheet, strip, & plate. The removal of brass allows us to be much more flexible & timely in meeting the changing requirements of our customers.
The result our customers will see is a heightened level of consistency from our mill, stock that's available for immediate shipment, lead times that meet their expectations, and the quality they’ve come to expect from Revere. T
here will be no changes to our Customer Support or Sales & Marketing Team, which will continue to be highly responsive to their needs.
The decision allows Revere to grow quickly and efficiently in an all copper direction, and serve its customers better than ever. Revere's goal is to be a world class supplier and deliver high quality copper products to its valued partners in the copper industry.
All communications regarding current order status should be directed to Revere's Customer Support Team in Rome, NY.

Revere Copper Products, Inc. Supplied Material in Six Award Winning Architecture Projects!
Each year, the Copper Development Association holds its North American Copper in Architecture Awards and in 2015, Revere Copper Products, Inc. supplied copper for six of the 12 winning projects.
1. Dumbarton Oaks Fellowship House - The detailing of the project relies heavily on the tradition of details documented in Copper and Common Sense, distributed by Revere Copper Products, Inc.
2. Harvard University Tozzer Library - When it came time to renovate and expand the Harvard University Tozzer Library, 20-ounce copper was chosen for the roof because of its durability, malleability and workability.
3. Laurel and Oak Halls, Social Sciences and Classroom Buildings, University of Connecticut - The sustainable aspects of copper were a significant consideration for the project, including copper's potential for being recycled.
4. Maine State House Dome Restoration - Approximately 15-18 percent of the copper was cut-off waste due to the curved nature of many of the components. The waste was then cut up and made into copper clip stock for the roof installation, or scrapped for recycling.
5. Massachusetts General Hospital Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation - The Massachusetts General Hospital Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation relied on copper for contextual, sustainable and architectural details.
6. Museum of Comparative Zoology - The roofing project at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University was a massive undertaking, requiring the duplication of the existing copper roof - the bulk of which consisted of copper panels with vertical batten seams and horizontal flat seams.
