SLM Solutions, a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology and systems, has expanded its North American footprint to accommodate rapid growth in the U.S. market.
SLM Solutions NA, Inc. has relocated its 3,000-square-foot facility in Novi, Michigan to a modern 7,170-square-foot office and showroom space at 28350 Cabot Drive, Suite 100, also in Novi in response to increased demand for fast, flexible and reliable prototyping systems.
With the recent office expansion, as well as the recruitment of additional staff, SLM Solutions NA is reaffirming growing activities in the U.S. market with plans for continued growth and recruitment of more qualified individuals in 2015.
“In this competitive environment, we are excited to continuously grow our capabilities to independently serve and support our customers in aerospace, medical, energy and consumer-based manufacturing,” said Vice President of North America, James Fendrick. “With our new facility, we look forward to hosting an increasing number of individuals who have the need to actively explore the distinct capabilities of each Selective Laser Melting system.”
The SLM 280HL system is currently available to generate demonstration production parts and the SLM 125HL and SLM 500HL are set to arrive from Germany in early 2015.
Since 2012, SLM Solutions NA has accomplished a further step in the globalization strategy of the Lübeck manufacturer to increase its service and distribution for North America.
In 2104, SLM Solutions NA tripled both its sales force and service engineer teams, bringing a combined 40 years’ experience to the company’s collective expertise.
