- Newest facility strategically established in collaboration with Swerea, a Swedish industrial research institute
- Third European-based PSC; Nine total PSCs globally
The ExOne Company (NASDAQ:XONE) ("ExOne" or "the Company"), a global provider of three-dimensional ("3D") printing machines and 3D printed and other products to industrial customers, announced today the planned opening of a new Production Service Center ("PSC") in Jönköping, situated in southern Sweden, in August 2015. This new PSC has been established in collaboration with Swerea (http://www.swerea.se/en), the Swedish Research Institute for Industrial Renewal and Sustainable Growth.
The PSC location is within the SWECAST unit of Swerea, the leading Swedish research group for industrial renewal and sustainable development. There, in close cooperation with the Swedish foundry industry and its customers, extensive research and development are conducted in such areas as casting simulation and technologies relating to production, energy use, environmental concerns and materials. Swerea has research specialists who are leaders in the development of new technologies, methods and products for direct application in industry, with 3D printing being an area in focus. In conjunction with its clients, Swerea finds solutions that lead to industrial renewal, competitive advantage and greater operational efficiency. Establishing its latest PSC within this facility creates a cost effective opportunity for ExOne to introduce its binder jetting technology to a market that is focused on the benefits of additive manufacturing for industrial metal applications.
S. Kent Rockwell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The ExOne Company commented, "We are proud to be associated with this prestigious organization, which has a regional, national and international presence. Having our PSC within SWECAST will expose the growing list of Swerea member companies and universities to the 3D printing capabilities of our binder jetting technology. They will have the opportunity to experience firsthand how our machines and 3D printed products can improve their operational efficiency and enhance their competitiveness."
ExOne's other PSCs are located in North Huntingdon, PA; Troy, MI; Houston, TX; Auburn, WA; North Las Vegas, NV; Gersthofen, Germany; Desenzano del Garda, Italy; and Kanagawa, Japan.
