Joslyn Manufacturing Site
The Joslyn Manufacturing Site is located in Fort Wayne, in Allen County, Indiana. From 1943 until 1946, the former Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply Company, currently known as the Fort Wayne Steel Corporation, processed uranium billets into metal rods under subcontract with the University of Chicago. Documentation also exists that indicates that Joslyn continued to roll uranium rods until at least 1949 for the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). The primary operations performed by the former Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply Co. consisted of tempering, hot rolling, quenching, straightening, cooling, grinding, abrasive cutting, waste burning, and threading of natural uranium billets into metal rods.
