“This week's signing ceremony and working session with Clarkson University is indicative of the excitement and commitment the men and women of Norsk Titanium feel about moving our operations to the North Country,” said Norsk Titanium President & Chief Executive Officer Warren M. Boley, Jr. “With our first MERKE IV™ production machine arriving here this week, we are building a foundation of futuristic aerospace production that requires the best and brightest engineers, scientists, operators and staff to be trained and prepared to revolutionize this industry.”

“We are pleased to welcome Norsk Titanium to the North Country and to Clarkson University to initiate this exciting relationship,” said Clarkson University President Tony Collins. “I look forward to aligning Clarkson’s rich engineering and research programs with Norsk’s advanced production technologies to give our students the most state-of-the art education possible.”
