SLM Solutions, a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology and systems, has increased the capacity of their North American subsidiary. SLM Solutions NA, Inc. has relocated their 3,000-square-foot office in Novi, Michigan to a modern 7,170-square-foot facility and showroom space at 28350 Cabot Drive, Suite 100, also in Novi. 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.
“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 review and generate demonstration production parts; with the SLM® 125HL and SLM® 500HL arriving from headquarters in Lübeck, Germany early 2015.
Furthermore, SLM Solutions NA tripled both their sales force and service engineer staff respectively in 2014; adding a combined 40 years’ experience to the team’s collective expertise. The North American subsidiary also stated plans for continued growth and recruitment of qualified individuals in 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. The amplified presence in North America answers an increasing demand for fast, flexible and reliable systems that are built for part and prototype production.
