PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – Jan. 31, 2019 – Officials with Norsk Titanium (Norsk), the global leader in additive manufacturing of aerospace-grade titanium components, announced today that Stephen L. Littauer has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer. Littauer joins Norsk with 32 years of executive financial experience with public and private, multi-national companies in the industrial, aerospace and defense industries. After serving as CFO for over three years, Bart van Aalst will return to his position as a member of the Norsk Board of Directors. 

“Steve’s unique background in large, public company leadership development, coupled with his experience in private equity companies, will prove a vital asset to Norsk as we increase our presence and impact within the additive manufacturing industry,” said Michael Canario, Norsk president and CEO. “As we welcome Steve, I also want to thank Bart for his role on the executive team, as his passion and commitment have been instrumental in our successes to date.”

I look forward to helping the company in its next phase of growth.”
