Following the formation of the new jointly established company, ImphyTek PowdersTM SAS in November 2019, Aperam S.A., Luxembourg, and Tekna, a subsidiary of Arendals Fossekompani ASA, headquartered in Sherbrooke, Canada, have nominated Ellen Brooke as CEO of the new company.
Brooke has worked in senior roles at Aperam since 2002 and the companies state that she has demonstrated strong capabilities in achieving revenue and business growth objectives within multiple environments, both in Europe and South America. Brooke has extensive experience in sales and manufacturing, with a deep understanding of critical business drivers in multiple markets and industries, and holds a Bachelor of Law from Hull University, UK.
According to Aperam and Tekna, after pre-notification discussions and short-form CO filing, the companies are in the process of obtaining European Commission clearance to create a full-function joint venture combining their expertise in nickel and speciality alloy spherical powders for advanced Additive Manufacturing technologies.
Upon EU Commission clearance, ImphyTek PowdersTM SAS will be based in France and will market the companies’ jointly developed high-quality spherical metal powders to meet the growing needs of Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) in all industrial segments.
