Ecka Granules/SCM to place greater focus on aluminum PM

February 9, 2011

Ecka Granules / SCM Metal Products, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA has announced that it will put a greater emphasis on its aluminium PM business.

At its inaugural global R&D meeting between SCM/Ecka Granules, CEO Barton White introduced Dr. Shuhai Huo as the Group’s new Vice President of Research and Development. Dr. Huo comes to the Group from the University of Queensland in Australia where along with Professor Graham Schaffer has been instrumental in developing innovative materials for the aluminium PM industry.

Dr. Huo and his team from the US, Germany and Austria will look to expand its product portfolio, develop the next generation of aluminium PM powders and build on the technical strengths already in place at Ecka Granules.

“Along with our strategic customers, the powders we develop will target new Aluminium PM applications that previously have not been feasible due to technically demanding properties”, stated White.
