Kymera (pronounced kī-ˈmir-ə) is an adaptation of Chimera, which according to Greek mythology was a massive fire-breathing being, created from the parts of more than one animal. For our company, it symbolizes AcuPowder, AmeriTi Manufacturing, CASL Surface Technologies, ECKA Granules, Innobraze, Reading Alloys, SCM Metals, Telex Metals and Thermal Spray Solutions coming together to create one resilient entity. The logo combines three powerful animals: namely, the lion, the ram, and the serpent.
