AMEXCI Announces major expansion to strengthen its position as one of the Additive Manufacturing powerhouses in Europe
ÖREBRO, Sweden – August 24, 2023 – AMEXCI, an integral part of the Nordic Additive Manufacturing (AM) ecosystem, today announces a large-scale strategic initiative to significantly enhance its manufacturing capabilities. AMEXCI is investing in a state-of-the-art facility, tailor made for AM and the latest industrial 3D-printing technology available in the market. This will streamline AMEXCI’s operations for high volume serial production, create space for future growth and position the company as one of the leading Additive Manufacturing entities in Europe.
“We feel that the time is right to expand”, says Edvin Resebo, CEO of AMEXCI. “Having built AMEXCI from the ground up over the past plus five years together with our partners and customers, we have tuned our processes to fit a variety of different industries and specialized towards serial production. Our greatest asset is the talented team we have formed, with deep knowledge across various AM verticals. It is key for our expansion to continuously invest in the latest technology, enabling us to offer unique industrial 3D-printing capabilities in Europe and the Nordic region.”
Principal shareholders, FAM, Saab, Scania, and Ericsson are leading this investment. Their company leaders share their perspective in the following way:
“FAM are great supporters of AMEXCI’s expansion. We think it’s a good next step for the company and believe it will create value for the whole industry. We hope that AMEXCI will be able to support companies to take the next step in their production, allowing for the next generation of great products. We are glad to be part of this journey and think its relevant to build competence and capacity within the area of AM in Sweden”, says Håkan Buskhe CEO of FAM.
Apart from growing the customer base for AMEXCI there are strategic interests in the technology as described by Micael Johansson, CEO of Saab Group, “Additive manufacturing is of strategic importance for Saab and the number of applications in our product portfolio constantly grows. We see the AMEXCI expansion as a way to support our growth and to enable technology to increase our competitiveness.” Saab serves the global market of governments, authorities and corporations with products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security.
The expanded capabilities of AMEXCI will equip the company to act as an enabler for future innovations “Expanding our AM capacity with AMEXCI is not just a strategic move, but a testament to our commitment to innovation and delivering superior products to our customers. The key to successfully embracing this transformative technology lies in the knowhow we have diligently built together. This expertise empowers us to push boundaries, drive progress, and shape the future of manufacturing”, said Börje Ekholm, CEO of Ericsson.
Christian Levin, CEO of Scania and TRATON GROUP, shared his view on the investment, saying ”Since the start of AMEXCI, the company has been important for us providing knowledge, training, and competence within the area of Additive Manufacturing.
