On an unseasonably chilly day with unexpected hailstorms, we were excited to hold the inauguration of our state-of-the-art Additive Manufacturing facility in Tampere, Finland. A testament to the company’s expanding footprint in Nordics, and an important milestone for AMEXCI.

Furthermore, Johannes highlighted that, “The unity between Sweden and Finland is crucial in order to pave the way in AM in the Nordic Region where AMEXCI and its partners plays a key role in the industrialization and innovation that is currently happening”.

Edvin Resebo, CEO of AMEXCI AB, also took the stage, expressing his enthusiasm for the new venture and shed some light on the future of AMEXCI as a group, stating “The success for us in Finland is dependent on strong cooperation with Finnish industry, academia, and government functions. We are expanding our overall capacity in the group to be able to grow as new innovations take flight and we will be able to offer our services at a completely different scale where our operations in Finland act as a strategic competence hub.”

Markus Korpela, Leader of the Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem (FAME), shared his perspective from the consolidated view of the Finnish AM market stating that “The Finnish AM ecosystem has a bright future”. Similarly, Juho Raukola, Innovation Manager from Wärtsilä, offered practical insights on how collaboration with AMEXCI has led to the realization of new innovative products for the Energy and Marine sectors.

Following the ribbon-cutting, guests were invited to tour the facility, getting a first-hand view of what the facility is all about and its full capacity.

The inauguration was not just a celebration of a new physical location, but also to mark an important starting point by connecting customers and collaboration partners alike. Tampere with its pool of talents and technological resources is a great location to start this journey together.
