Proto Labs Acquires Portions of German Manufacturer Alphaform

Rapid manufacturer Proto Labs, Inc., Maple Plain, MN/USA, announced that it has closed on the purchase of select assets and operations of German-based manufacturer Alphaform AG, which significantly extends Proto Labs’ additive manufacturing (3D printing) capabilities across Europe.

Alphaform is a leading service bureau headquartered in Feldkirchen (Munich), Germany. The acquisition includes Alphaform divisions operating in Germany, Finland and the United Kingdom. This acquisition will significantly expand Proto Labs’ recently launched additive manufacturing capabilities in Europe by adding selective laser sintering, direct metal laser sintering and additional stereolithography capabilities. The acquisition also includes the injection molding service currently offered by Alphaform Claho, in Eschenlohe, Germany. MediMet Precision Casting and Implants Technology GmbH, a 100 % subsidiary of Alphaform AG is not part of the transaction.

Proto Labs’ existing European business includes injection molding, CNC machining and stereolithography services operating out of Telford, England. The purchase also gives Proto Labs a major presence in Germany, which is the largest single market for the company’s services in Europe.
