Metal powder producer Sandvik AB, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, has announced that KBM Advanced Materials, LLC, based in Fairfield, Ohio, USA, will distribute its range of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing across the USA.

KBM, established in 2021, provides a unique supply network in the United States that helps bridge the gap between a dispersed customer base and metal powder producers. The collaboration will increase the availability of Sandvik’s Osprey metal powders in the region.

“We are thrilled to offer our customers in the United States easy access to our market-leading range of Osprey metal powders,” stated Andrew Coleman, Head of metal powder and Additive Manufacturing at Sandvik. “We are seeing increasing demand for our high-quality powders and have listened to our customers’ needs for a US-based stock with short delivery times.

In April 2023, Sandvik announced the launch of its e-commerce platform, Osprey Online, designed to offer the European market a range of metal AM powders directly from stock. The partnership with KBM is expected to bring the same quick access to its Osprey metal powders in the US.

Luke Harris, Sales Director for metal powder business at Sandvik, added, “We often say ‘The Right Partner is Everything’, and that is certainly as true for us as it is for our end users. KBM shares Sandvik’s focus on creating value for our customers and we feel very optimistic having entered this partnership to provide the US market premium metal powders quickly and efficiently. Our wide range of Osprey metal powders is well-known and trusted across several demanding industries, thanks to our long-standing experience, unique level of traceability, and overall quality. I’m convinced our metal powder offering in combination with KBM’s attractive platform will prove beneficial to our US customers.”

KBM offers a wide range of ready-to-order metal powders to customers in the metal AM and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) sectors through its online shop system.

“KBM is excited to partner with Sandvik to increase accessibility of Osprey metal powders in the United States,” stated Kevin Kemper, KBM CEO. “On-demand availability of products drives growth in the metal powder industry, and our e-commerce solution features an easy-to-use interface, secure online transactions, detailed product information, pricing transparency, and the ability to ship products within a day of purchase. Our customers will embrace the addition of Sandvik’s quality products to the KBM marketplace increasing demand for Osprey metal powders.”
