“Over the last two years, we’ve established 6K Additive in North America as the go-to organization for high-quality AM powder with environmental and sustainable benefits that no other powder manufacturer can offer. We’re excited to bring our powders to the European market where a high value is placed on technologies that can contribute to the circular economy and meet their stringent quality metrics,” said Frank Roberts, president of 6K Additive. “Having a leader like François on the ground in Europe who has the experience, knowledge, and reputation will be invaluable as we ramp up our EU commercial efforts over the coming months. This is especially important given the interest we’ve seen from the printer OEMs and strategic customers based in Europe.”

6K Additive’s mission is to provide a solution for global decarbonization in producing performance additive manufacturing materials that are critical to production in markets such as aerospace, medical and industrial applications. The company recently released results from an LCA study conducted by Foresight Management comparing the environmental impact of 6K’s UniMelt microwave plasma technology to current atomization technologies to produce metal powders. The results showed a 91% reduction in energy use and a 91.5% reduction in carbon emissions when using the 6K UniMelt process.

François joins 6K Additive, having spent the last ten-plus years working in the metal powder and alloys markets with organizations such as Powder Alloy Corporation, Tekna Plasma System, and TIG, where he was responsible for sales and business development in Europe. Mr. Bonjour also spent eight years at ThyssenKrupp, where he worked with leading aerospace companies such as GE Aviation, Airbus, Safran, and others.
