The LTA also calls for expansion to supply an additional volume of nickel powder as well as additional alloys to support CAI's rapidly expanding production requirements.

"Our customer base continues to expand, and we need to ensure not only the quality of the powder but also a reliable supply chain that we can be 100% confident we can meet our manufacturing demand," said Tim Blaisdell, Chief Strategy Officer for CAI. "We have worked with the team at 6K Additive over the last year and they have consistently proven to be a reliable partner. Key to our military and defense customer requirements, 6K Additive is a domestic supplier offering sustainably sourced feedstock making this the ideal partnership."

6K Additive President Frank Roberts added, "We are excited about the partnership with Tim and the team at CAI. As our capacity and capabilities increase, we need to align ourselves with growing organizations like CAI to ensure their strategic AM customers' goals and needs are met. Securing long-term agreements allows our operation to forecast, plan and ultimately produce powder at volumes that meet market demands. The LTA with CAI helps our operational efficiencies and builds long-term partnerships that provide mutual success."
