Pflugh has had a sixteen-year career at Kennametal, most recently serving as VP and General Manager of the Engineered Wear Components division. He reportedly played a pivotal role in implementing strategies that resulted in double-digit revenue growth. His previous positions, such as Chief Commercial Officer overseeing a $1 billion business segment and VP of the insert tooling business unit, highlight his strong strategic abilities, leadership skills, and talent for driving significant commercial growth.

Wolak brings a wealth of experience, having most recently worked as the Financial Director for the Architectural Coatings division of PPG Industries, Inc, a multi-billion-dollar business within the publicly traded, $18 billion global manufacturer of paints, coatings, and specialty materials. With a sixteen-year tenure at PPG, Jonathan held critical roles, including the Global Finance Director for the Packaging Coatings business unit and the Director of Financial Planning and Analysis, where he was said to have played a key role in driving significant growth and amplifying earnings.

“I am delighted to welcome Nick and Jonathan to our executive team at 6K Additive. Each brings a unique blend of expertise, vision, and proven leadership that is not only impressive but essential for our customers as they look to secure domestic supply of critical materials like titanium and C103 both vital to our nation’s defence,” shared Frank Roberts, president of 6K Additive. “Jonathan’s financial acumen and strategic insights, coupled with Nicholas’s exceptional track record of working with the defence primes and global organisations to drive commercial growth, align perfectly with our ambitious roadmap. Their contributions will be instrumental in accelerating our mission to deliver unparalleled value, innovation, and quality to our clients worldwide.”
