Yuelong Superfine Metal Powders appoints US Metal Powders as distributor for the Americas
May 9, 2011
Yuelong Superfine Metal Powders (YSM), a pre-eminent Chinese producer of carbonyl iron (CIP) and stainless steel powders, has appointed United States Metal Powders, Inc. (USMP) as their distributor for the Americas.
YSM’S selection was greatly influenced by USMP’s success in marketing and providing technical support for more than 15 years for a Japanese producer of similar powders.
USMP was founded in 1918 and was formerly United States Bronze Powders, Inc. In 2010 USMP sold its copper based powder business to focus on the growing global demand for specialized aluminum powders and those specialized metal powders provided by YSM. These powders take advantage of the rapidly increasing demand for technically superior particulates for industries such as the metal injection molding (MIM) and renewable energy processes.
YSM was founded in 2001 initially as a producer of carbonyl iron powders (CIP) and during the past eight years has become one of the major global producers of CIP. At the same time, YSM has expanded its product range to include a series of stainless steel and high alloy metal powders for use in both MIM and conventional Powder Metallurgy (PM) applications.
