ECKA Granules (officially formed as an independent company in 2001), can trace its roots back to 1876 when ECKART established a small “gold beaters shop” in Fürth, Germany. In 1918 its first powder facility was founded to manufacture bronze powders and in 1929 its first aluminum powder facility was established.
ACuPowder International was originally formed in 1916 as The Metals Disintegrating Company to manufacture metal powders. It changed ownership over the years and became ACuPowder International in 1995.
SCM Metal Products’ metal powder production was originally formed as Glidden Metals Company, which in the early 1930’s began to produce copper powder. In 1967 the Glidden Metals Company merged with Smith-Corona Marchant, (SCM) a typewriter manufacturer, ultimately changing its name to SCM Metal Products.
