Norsk Titanium expands production capacity at New York facility

June 19, 2017

Norsk Titanium AS, Oslo, Norway, has finalised a definitive purchase agreement for twelve of its Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) Merke-IV™ machines with Fort Schuyler Management Corporation and Empire State Development for use in its Plattsburgh, North Country, New York, USA, production centre. This new order will begin delivery in mid-2018.

This agreement is incremental to the twenty-machine order announced last year. Machines from that order are currently being delivered throughout 2017. Each machine is capable of producing up to 20 tons of printed material per year, with significantly less waste and machining energy than conventional processing, allowing for a cost savings of more than 30%.

“Norsk Titanium’s new production and development facilities will bolster the North Country’s advanced manufacturing sector and the increasing demand for their products is great news for the local economy,” stated Empire State Development President, CEO & Commissioner Howard Zemsky. “Norsk continues to meet or exceed their commitments to the State and we look forward to their continued growth in Upstate New York.”
