The PDQC will complement the US company’s new headquarters and manufacturing plant which is currently in the design and planning phase with a targeted completion date in 2017.
The PDQC facility is funded by a Norsk Titanium investment designed to accelerate production and the creation of jobs and economic development in the Plattsburgh-North County region.
Details of the new Norsk Titanium additive manufacturing PDQC facility include:
Norsk Titanium President & Chief Executive Officer Warren M. Boley Junior said: “Launching the PDQC facility in 2016 represents a multi-million dollar investment by Norsk Titanium in the region and demonstrates our commitment to quickly commence operations and get a head-start on partnering with the people of Plattsburgh to generate jobs and economic development here.”
Boley added: “As the industrial scale RPD factory next door comes online during the next year or so, we will move the bulk of production there, while retaining this PDQC building as a qualification and training centre as well as a showcase for our latest innovations and technology.”
