The Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association (AMGTA) has announced that it has been joined by a further eight AM organisations, and now totals twenty-eight members. The non-commercial, unaffiliated association was launched in 2019 to promote the environmental benefits of Additive Manufacturing over traditional manufacturing.
Stratasys, headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA, and Rehovot, Israel, has joined the AMGTA as a new Founding Member and will serve alongside existing Founding Members ExOne, QC Laboratories, Sintavia and Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation. These five Founding Members will determine the strategic direction of the AMGTA, provide governance oversight, and consider future research projects that members may vote to commission.
Joining the AMGTA as new Participating Members are 3D Metalforge, 3D Systems, 3YOURMIND, AMT, Hyperion Metals, NatureWorks and The Barnes Global Advisors. They will serve alongside existing Participating Members AMEXCI, BASF 3D Printing Solutions, Danish AM Hub, DyeMansion, EOS, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT), GE Additive, HP, Materialise, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, Rusal America, Siemens Digital Industries Software, SLM Solutions, Stryker, Trumpf, and 6K.
“I’m elated to welcome aboard our new Founding Member Stratasys, as well as each of our new Participating Member companies,” stated Sherry Handel, Executive Director of the AMGTA. “Their collective pledge to support the AMGTA’s mission well-positions our trade group for accelerated growth and investment in new sustainability research projects in Additive Manufacturing. I look forward to working with each of our members as we expand the AMGTA as the key industry resource committed to advancing sustainability in the AM industry.”
