Additive manufacturer EOS reports steady global growth

Nov. 23, 2015
Additive manufacturing solutions provider EOS reported that by October 2015, there were approximately 2000 of the company's systems installed around the world.

At the Formnext tradeshow (November 17-20, 2015; Frankfurt, Germany), additive manufacturing solutions provider EOS (Krailing, Germany) reported that by October 2015, there were approximately 2000 of the company's systems installed around the world.

"We were able to double our installed base over the last three years; during the last two years, the number of metal laser sintering systems was doubled from 400 to 800 systems. During the past business year alone, the company sold 400 systems, including 220 metal systems. This underlines EOS' leadership role particularly in the metal segment and the growing interest in this technology—particularly in the series production segment. We expect that market demand will continue to rise in the future," said Dr. Adrian Keppler, chief marketing officer at EOS.

During the last business year, EOS increased sales revenues by 53% over the previous year to €263 million. All regions exceeded targets—especially North America, with a record result of more than $100 million in revenues. The company now has 750 employees worldwide, a 38% increase in its global workforce compared to the previous year. This growth is reflected in the fact that individual locations are also experiencing steady growth. At its Krailing headquarters, the technology and customer center, which started up just last year, is already reaching the limits of its capacities.
