Tekna Holding ASA, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has signed a long-term titanium powder supply agreement with US-based medical device manufacturer Marle Tangible, formerly Tangible Solutions which was acquired by the Marle Group earlier this year.

The agreement will see Tekna supply and deliver titanium powder to be used for Marle Tangible’s additively manufactured and specialised orthopaedic implants. Metal Additive Manufacturing enables the production of complex medical components, and this growing segment is said to currently represent 16% of Tekna’s Additive Manufacturing sales.

“We are excited to have been selected by Marle Tangible as their preferred partner for titanium powders,” commented Luc Dionne, Chief Executive Officer at Tekna Canada. “With the Marle Group being a leading player in orthopaedic implants, we consider this agreement a testimonial to the high quality of our products. We are delighted to add Marle Tangible to our growing list of major medical customers and look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”

Tekna notes that the supply agreement follows a longstanding partnership between itself and Marle Tangible and positions Tekna as a preferred supplier of metal powders in the field of medical implants and devices.

Chris Collins, Chief Operations Officer at Marle Tangible, stated, “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Tekna. Their high-quality titanium powders are impressive, consistent, and always delivered in a timely manner. We are very pleased to have secured long-term supply. They have believed in us and supported our success for a very long time. At Marle Tangible, we aim to continue paving the way for additive manufactured medical devices with Tekna by our side.”
