Our Powders. Your Products.

Made in America

If you have a need to source tungsten powder products that are Made in America, Buffalo Tungsten would love to be your supplier. We provide a high quality, competitively priced alternative to foreign sources. Buffalo Tungsten has only one location and all of our operations are in Western New York. We are one of a very small group of companies that can supply tungsten powder and tungsten carbide powders that are truly Made in America.


There are companies that import tungsten powder from other countries and sell them in the United States. Just because materials are repackaged and sold by a US company does not mean that it originated in the United States. If the products have not undergone a substantial transformation (e.g. chemical reaction) they maintain the origin of the country in which they were produced. For example, if you purchase material from a US trading company that imports tungsten powder from China, there is a good chance that you are not using material that is Made in America.


It is true that we bring in raw materials such as tungsten ores and concentrates from other countries because there are no active tungsten mines in America to meet the demand in our country. However, the materials that we import undergo a substantial transformation to tungsten powder through chemical reactions that alter their composition and use. This allows us to issue a Certificate of Origin listing the United States of America as the country of origin. A very basic overview of our process shows some of the transformations that take place.

If you need confidence that your tungsten and tungsten carbide powder products are Made in America, look no further than Buffalo Tungsten to meet you needs!

Just-in-Time (JIT) Inventory Systems

At Buffalo Tungsten, we are committed to providing the level of quality, reliability, and responsiveness that our customers need to make a JIT system possible if they so choose. As a U.S.-based producer, we can offer our North American customers especially short lead times that allow us to quickly respond when their systems demand tungsten powders. If you’re a user of tungsten powder looking to implement a JIT system, or just to reduce your inventory levels, contact us today to discuss how we can be the reliable supplier your company needs. The Just-in-Time inventory system has become increasingly common in the business world in recent years. JIT is a “demand-pull” system in which each component in a production line is only produced as needed by the next stage in the process. Demand triggers each step of the production cycle (Datar & Rajan, 2018). The goal of JIT is to minimize inventory and carrying costs, freeing up capital for other uses. References: Banton, Caroline.

Operating at Capacity

Buffalo Tungsten produces essential materials and continues to operate at normal capacity during the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. You can be assured that we can continue to meet your demand for tungsten materials.

Although we have an exemption from New York State to remain in operation, we are not conducting business a usual in many respects. We have taken steps to monitor the evolving risk and safeguard our employees and their families. We have educated our workforce on the best ways to avoid exposure to the virus and prevent spreading the virus to others. We have limited physical interactions between employees, made additional personal protective equipment available, and increased the frequency of sanitizing our facility to mitigate risk.

New York State has taken measures to reduce the community spread of the virus by requiring non-essential businesses to “reduce the in-person workforce at each business/work location by 100%...” Exemptions have been made for what are deemed to be essential businesses which allow Buffalo Tungsten to continue to operate.

We pray for the safety of our suppliers and customers and their families during the spread of this virus and the COVID-19 disease. We have faith that it will soon pass and we will be in a stronger position to face future threats.
