Stratasys has increased its commitment to the UK market through a variety of initiatives aimed at driving the adoption of additive manufacturing and supporting the needs of customers.

Building upon success in 2018, Stratasys has established two locations in Cambridge and Derby. The new sites will be home to technical and business consultants, as well as software developers from the company’s GrabCAD software arm. The Derby site, acting as home to Stratasys’ Strategic Consultants, is dedicated to helping UK businesses implement winning AM strategies These sites will also act as a hub for field-based staff, such as application engineers and service support. Additionally, the company has bolstered its UK team and extended its numbers with additional application engineers and software developers.  

“As stated in a recent independent report, the UK is among the top five countries worldwide in terms of its adoption of additive manufacturing,” explains Andy Langfeld, President, EMEA, Stratasys. “We are therefore committed to ensuring the appropriate support infrastructure is in place to meet the varied requirements of our UK-based channel partners and customers, and properly equip them to ensure they fully optimise the use of this technology”.

The initial few months of 2019 have continued to see Stratasys progress relationships with innovative customers across various industries in the UK, among them, the likes of, Angel Trains, AP Racing, ESG Rail, McLaren and Quadpack.

Beyond adding to its facilities and extending its UK team, Stratasys has also worked closely with some of its trusted Platinum Partners to launch the Stratasys Academy, a number of Stratasys Authorised Training Centres across the UK. These include the services run by Tri Tech 3D in Stoke, and Laser Lines in Oxford. These training academies are a direct result of the growing number of additive manufacturing professionals operating in the UK and will hopefully be a key component in helping businesses to overcome the skills gaps often associated with the technology.

On 9 April, Stratasys will hold its annual Additive Manufacturing Seminar at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry, UK. Delegates will enjoy sessions from Stratasys’ experts exploring topics such as, recent developments in additive technologies, training resources available and developing value-added business cases. There will also be guest customer speakers from McLaren F1 and BAE Systems.
