(By Balachander) Carpenter Technology Corp. (NYSE: CRS) and Sandvik Materials Technology said they will dissolve their two-year old joint ventures and the companies reached a supply agreement with respect to their powder metal businesses.

Wyomissing, Pennsylvania-based Carpenter Technology bought a 40 percent interest in Sandvik Powdermet AB, Sweden, while Sandvik AB acquired a 40 percent interest in Sweden-based Carpenter Powder Products (CPP) AB in October 2010.

The joint ventures will be fully dissolved by the end of the calendar year, the companies said.

The companies have agreed that the growth of their respective powder metal businesses would be better served in the form of a supply agreement, by which Carpenter will supply Sandvik.
