The AVEKA Group

AVEKA, Inc.

Particle Processing, Manufacturing and Research & Development

In Brief
AVEKA Inc. was the first company to be established in the AVEKA Group. It was founded in 1994 with the divestiture of 3M's Fine Particle Pilot Plant. 3M set up the original facility as the 3M Toner Pilot Plant and converted it to general powder processing in 1986. Willie Hendrickson managed it for 3M and then had the opportunity to acquire the space and equipment and establish it as AVEKA in 1994. The name AVEKA (ä vee' kä) is derived from the Norwegian "Avikka" which means to deviate (as to deviate, or depart from 3M). To our surprise we also found it is a Hebrew word for "dust."

Capabilities
AVEKA Inc. specializes in custom particle processing, toll manufacturing, powder process research and development, and consulting. Our experienced scientists and engineers as well as our wide variety of processes and equipment enable us to determine with you the processes and conditions for your material.
