Powder producer Equispheres has appointed Thomas Bloor as its new head of global business development.

According to the company, Bloor has previously held roles as senior director of sales, Americas, for Blackberry QNX, a supplier of embedded software related to autonomous vehicles, and director of strategic accounts with Intel.

Plans are for Bloor to help introduce Equispheres’ aluminum powder in the automotive, aerospace and defense industries. The spherical aluminum powder can print three to five times faster than traditional powders and achieve cost reductions of 50%, the company claims.

‘Equispheres is an exciting place to be right now,’ Bloor adds, ‘because automotive manufacturers are trying to make vehicle production more responsive and less costly, and we have a technology that meets that need.’

‘Adding Thomas to the team will help us deal with increased customer demand, particularly in the automotive sector where we are seeing exceptional growth,’ added Doug Brouse, vice-president of strategic partners and alliances, Equispheres.
