Gränges, a leading global supplier of rolled aluminium products for heat exchanger applications and other niche markets, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, has established a new business unit: Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

With a responsive organisation and two powder production sites, Gränges sees great opportunities in the Additive Manufacturing sector and believes that this newest division will serve as an important platform for growth within the fast-paced markets of powder materials and Additive Manufacturing. The main production facility is located in St Avold, France, with sales and technical development based in Velbert, Germany.

“We are a slim and flexible organisation with focus on partner and stakeholder management,” commented Filip Fernqvist, Managing Director at Gränges Powder Metallurgy, told Powder Metallurgy Review. “We are both a powder producer and alloy developer, able to produce powder in house, both in France as well as in Germany.”

Gränges has stated that its objective is to become a leader in the manufacture of niche and custom AM-grade aluminium powders for a range of applications. The company is targeting the aerospace and automotive industries, which are undergoing the fastest growth, without losing sight of other areas such as heat exchangers and automation, where the company still sees great potential.

Greta D’Angelo, Additive Manufacturing Business Development Lead, told Powder Metallurgy Review: “Gränges has a combined experience and in-depth knowledge in several key areas – for example, Powder Metallurgy, aluminium market and alloy development for heat exchanger applications. This heritage plays an important role and puts us in a position of competitive advantage. AM powder is our core business, but we are looking into engineering services and down-streaming opportunities as well for prototype production.”

Delivering premium powders of high-quality with fast development times is one of Gränges’ core values. The company believes a key to its success is a close collaboration with customers and partners, which ensures a strategic positioning within the AM ecosystem.

“It is very important for us to be on the market with a competitive product that is relevant to our customers,” Fernqvist added. “That’s why we are always on the lookout for partnerships and beta testers for our new materials.”
