Tekna signs ten-year supply agreement for metal AM powder

July 14, 2021

Tekna Holding AS, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has signed a ten year master supply agreement with an international leading company in the aviation, defence and space industry. The agreement will reportedly make Tekna the primary supplier of Additive Manufacturing powder for the tier-1 customer and its related supply chain for different materials, such as aluminium and titanium alloys.

Rémy Pontone, VP Sales & Marketing at Tekna, stated, “This agreement confirms Tekna’s leadership position in the aerospace supply chain. It is the result of over five years of joint efforts that started with the drafting of the product specifications, commercial sample evaluations and multiple successful quality audits of Tekna manufacturing operations and quality management system that concluded with this agreement.”

Tekna produces high-quality powders dedicated to AM, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) applications that feature high flowability, high density and high purity at controlled production costs. These properties are attained by applying the patented RF Plasma Technology that was developed by the company over the last thirty years.

Luc Dionne, CEO, Tekna, commented, “Tekna’s broad product offering, and history of manufacturing excellence resonates in the mind of the decision makers at all levels in the Additive Manufacturing industry. It stretches beyond considerations of cost competitiveness and reaches out to value-added supply of strategic materials. This has become the trademark of our company and it is the culmination of a trust-building process between Tekna and our customers.”
