Stratasys expands UK footprint

Stratasys has established its first two sites in the UK, in Cambridge and Derby, although the majority of staff will continue to be field-based.

Stratasys’ new offices will give GrabCad engineers a base to work from.

The Derby site will be home to Stratasys’ Strategic Consultants and is dedicated to helping UK businesses implement AM strategies. The Cambridge base, which has a J750 full colour 3D printer, will be used by software developers from the company’s GrabCAD software arm.These sites will also act as a hub for field-based staff, such as application engineers and service support. The company has also taken on more application engineers and software developers. 

Stratasys has also worked with some of its dealers to open authorized training centres, including Tri Tech 3D in Stoke and Laser Lines in Oxford. 

Andy Langfeld, president of Stratasys’ European operation, noted that a recent report placed the UK among the top five countries to adopt additive manufacturing, adding: “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 optimize the use of this technology”.

Stratasys will also hold annual Additive Manufacturing Seminar at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry, which will cover recent technical developments and how to make a business case for using 3D printing in manufacturing. You can find out more details about this event at
