Seeking to boost additive manufacturing innovations, SLM Solutions opens new headquarters

The new headquarters will provide optimal general conditions for future additive manufacturing innovations.

SLM Solutions (Lübeck, Germany) celebrated the official opening of its new company headquarters in Lübeck. These headquarters are in a modern competence center that provides optimal general conditions for future additive manufacturing innovations, higher production capacities, and further growth.

Two and a half years ago, the company made the decision to build the new headquarters at a different location in Lübeck. In record time, a modern center was constructed on an area 70,000 m2 with 10,000 m2 of office space, a hall area of 15,000 m2 and space for the currently more than 360 employees.

The optimal infrastructure, a direct connection to the highway, and enough space for further expansion of the company tipped the scales in favor of the new site. The company is going to push ahead with the development of state-of-the-art additive manufacturing machines at full speed, creating many new jobs in the process. The company has hired more than 200 new employees in recent years. IT specialists and software developers as well as mechanical engineers are particularly sought.

"In times of change in manufacturing technology, in which the competitive environment with new technologies is becoming more and more complex and the rate of innovations is increasing tremendously, offering young skilled workers an attractive employer with future viability and a modern competence center such as our new company headquarters is crucial for the future and innovation ability of our company," says Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions.
