Concept Laser Breaks Ground for New 3D Campus
On November 30, GE and Concept Laser laid the foundation for a new facility in Lichtenfels, Germany. In the future, the 3D Campus will unite research and development along with production, service, and logistics. The new offices should be ready for move-in early 2019, and around 40,000 square meters will provide room for about 500 employees. The future machine production capacity will be four times higher than today. This will make Concept Laser’s Lichtenfels facility a global GE center for the production of 3D metal printing machines. About 105 million euros will be invested into the location.
The 3D Campus will accommodate the strong growth of Concept Laser in recent years and make room for further expansions. “I am pleased to take the next step in our growth strategy with today’s groundbreaking. We are not only laying the foundation for a new facility, but also creating skilled jobs in the region. Lichtenfels will become a global beacon for industrial 3D printing as the new GE center,” says Frank Herzog, founder and Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Concept Laser GmbH.
