It’s been a busy week for deal making for two of the largest 3D printing companies in the world, Stratasys, and 3D Systems. Earlier is-1in the week we saw 3D Systems announce their acquisition of Medical Modeling Inc., as well as Stratasys announcing agreements to acquire two companies, Solid Concepts and Harvest Technologies. Today, Stratasys added to their acquisition spree by agreeing to acquire certain assets of Interfacial Solutions.

Interfacial Solutions provides production services, as well as thermoplastics R&D to the industry. Over the last three years the company has been a major production partner for Stratasys’ FDM product lines, and has played a major role in research and is-2development around some of Stratasys’ thermoplastic materials. This acquisition is clearly a natural fit for a company looking to grow, while cutting out the middlemen within their business model.

“Interfacial Solutions provides significant expertise in plastics and filament,” says David Reis, CEO of Stratasys. “We believe its knowledgeable team and experience will accelerate Stratasys’ materials development efforts for all of our FDM platforms, including MakerBot. The acquisition is expected to accomplish three objectives for Stratasys, which include strengthening our materials R&D skills and bandwidth; enabling us to become vertically integrated in material development and manufacturing; and increasing materials production space and capacity. Overall, we expect to accelerate new materials development, allowing us to introduce new products to the market faster.”

Interfacial Solutions, based near River Falls, Wisconsin, was founded in 2003, with a vision to provide product development services to the plastic industry, as well as help those looking to innovate, do just that, innovate. Stratasys expects the acquisition to close sometime in this quarter. Discuss this Stratasys acquisition at 3DPrintBoard.
