AP&C invests in new titanium powder facility

Montreal-based manufacturer Advanced Powders & Coatings (AP&C) has announced the commissioning and inauguration of its new CAD$31 million titanium powder manufacturing factory located in Saint-Eustache, Quebec.

AP&C is a supplier of titanium powder for additive manufacturing, and two years ago embarked on planning to create a second production facility to meet rising demand. The investment in the new facility will create 106 new jobs over the next three years, with 50 percent of these positions being filled by the end of 2017.

AP&C’s titanium powder, created in silo-like reactors using a process called Advanced Plasma Atomization, is sold mainly to manufacture airplane engines and artificial joints, including knees and hips.
