Stratasys says their latest facility features a state-of-the-art showroom, a benchmark center and customer training facilities. The opening of its new 53,000 square foot EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Headquarters in Rheinmuenster, Germany, marks the creation of a purpose-built site to support the company’s growing capacity requirements and increase customer service capability with it’s customer training and benchmarking facilities.
The new, four-story site features three workshop rooms which Stratasys has dedicated to providing support for EMEA universities and research institutions.
“To meet existing and future growth expectations, we have moved to a facility specifically designed to cater to our customer needs and our expanding operations,” says Andy Middleton, the Senior Vice President and General Manager EMEA. “With customer service as the driving force for everything we do, our new facility features dedicated training facilities and an exceptional benchmark center, demonstrating our commitment to customers and their continued growth and success.”
The Stratasys Benchmark Center EMEA is, according to the company, much larger than the previous facility and houses the full range of the company’s FDM and PolyJet 3D printers.
The company says it’s aimed at allowing partners and customers to gain experience and training in Stratasys technologies like the desktop Idea Series and 3D Production Systems like the Fortus 900mc and Objet1000.
Stratasys says another focus of the facility will be to make the workshop rooms available for collaborations with university and research institutions, and Middleton says they’ve already worked on a number of university projects which move additive manufacturing technology forward and help support the industry by fostering innovation.
“Our continued drive to push the envelope of our technology and the wider industry is key to our business, and our responsibility as an industry leader,” Middleton adds.
Stratasys hosted an unveiling event for more than 140 employees and regional vendors at the new center, and the guest list included the Mayor of Rheinmuenster, Helmut Pautler, and the Mayor of Huegelsheim, Reiner Dehmelt.
Scott Crump, the Chief Innovation Officer for Stratasys, Elchanan Jaglom, the Chairman of the Board and David Reis, the Chief Executive Officer of Stratasys, were on hand to take care of the ribbon cutting ceremony. According to Middleton, Stratasys’ 25 years in the additive manufacturing industry has led to the new facility which he says will help the company develop its EMEA business.
The facility was designed by architects J. Romeo Kühnl and Uwe Schmidt of Kühnl + Schmidt Architekten in collaboration with Markus Schneider and Filiz Uysaler of Stratasys.
