Stratasys Opens Two More UK Facilities

3D Printing Industry reports on two more openings of Stratasys facilities in the UK.  The sits at Cambridge and Derby will extend Stratasys’ “staff within the UK in order to bolster its infrastructure.  The moves are part of an increased commitment to the UK 3D printing market from Stratasys, as it aims to drive adoption and support the needs of a growing pool of customers.”

As Stratasys President of EMEA Andy Langfeld explains: “the various initiatives established for this region is a response to an independent report listing the UK as one of the top five countries globally in adopting additive manufacturing.  We are therefore committed to ensuring the appropriate support infrastructure in place to meet the varied requirements of our UK-based channel partners and customers, and properly equip them to ensure they fully optimize the use of this technology.”

For these two new UK sites, Stratasys aims “to place technical and business consultants alongside developers from GrabCAD, its Massachusetts-based software subsidiary.  Both sites will also act as hubs for the company’s field-based staff, including application engineers and service support.”

Beyond these two sites, Stratasys “has also opened different Authorized Training Centres across the UK as part of its Academy Initiative.  The training academies are a response to the increasing need for additive manufacturing professionals within the UK, and are designed to help business overcome the engineering skills gap.”
