Telephone contact with current company officials provided the following information: (1) Provided machine shop services on beryllium copper materials from 1985-2002 in an existing building (still used as a machine shop) at the current address of the company; (2) there is a difference in start date (1985 vs. 1987), and there possibly was AEC/DOE beryllium contract work conducted in the 1960-70s in a different location on Yale Boulevard; (3) beryllium work was only conducted for AEC/DOE and was not conducted in any special work area; and (4) no specific decontamination for beryllium took place after the contracts were terminated.
Sources of information reviewed during this evaluation included the DOE ES&H Website, documentation provided by the DOE ES&H group consisting of written communications by or for the DOE, and telephone contact with current company officials.
