Tekna and Aperam sign MoU on spherical metal powder development

November 29, 2018

Tekna, a supplier of plasma induction systems and metal powders based in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aperam, Luxembourg, to jointly develop high quality spherical metal powders.

The industrial partnership will see the production of spherical powders of nickel superalloys and steels, and is expected to benefit from the existing knowledge, expertise and industrial facilities of both Aperam and Tekna.

Luc Dionne, CEO of Tekna Plasma Systems, commented, “Tekna is proud to team up with Aperam, a partner whose dynamism, innovation and reputation are widely recognised in the industry.”

Timoteo Di Maulo, CEO of Aperam, added, “We are very proud of today’s agreement with Tekna, which is part of our strategy to further transform our business and address the next generation needs of our customers through new technologies. This collaboration also enables us to further consolidate our leading position in the nickel alloys and speciality steels markets.”

Aperam is a global provider of stainless, electrical and speciality steel, and is organised across three primary segments: Stainless & Electrical Steel, Services & Solutions and Alloys & Specialties. The company has 2.5 million tonnes of flat stainless and electrical steel capacity in Brazil and Europe.
