AMEXCI, a joint venture company in Additive Manufacturing (AM a.k.a. Industrial 3D-Printing) based in Karlskoga, Sweden, is establishing a subsidiary in Finland, funded by Saab with a current investment of 1,2 million euros.

Newly funded AMEXCI OY will establish a team of experts to work closely with companies, universities, and research institutes. Collaboration with the AM expertise in FAME – the Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem – and supporting AMEXCI’s already existing shareholder companies will be on top of the agenda, focusing on increasing the industrial adoption of these innovative technologies.

AMEXCI together with Saab, one of the twelve shareholder companies behind AMEXCI, have been working with industrial 3D printing projects to realize a more sustainable and competitive supply chain. One of the latest successful projects was exploring AM as a temporary solution for Battlefield Damage Repair of fighter planes, while waiting for the original parts to arrive. Saab’s investment into AMEXCI OY will provide the necessary means, not only for a closer collaboration between the Swedish and the Finish industries regarding adoption of Additive Manufacturing technologies, but also for long-term support and a closer collaboration between AMEXCI and its shareholders.
