APWORKS, Taufkirchen, Germany, has appointed Jon Meyer as new Chief Product Officer, effective immediately. In his new function, Meyer will be responsible for the strategic and technical development of series Additive Manufacturing applications at the company.

Meyer’s move to APWORKS follows more than ten years at Airbus, where in his recent position as Technology Roadmap Owner Additive Manufacturing Processes he was globally responsible for defining the vision and strategy for technology within Airbus, serving the wide range of technology needs and applications within civil and military aircraft, helicopter, and satellite products. Prior to that, Meyer was leading the central research and technology team responsible for the development of Additive Manufacturing within Airbus Group, where he is said to have developed a strong technical expertise in a wide range of AM technologies, with a focus on Powder Bed Fusion and Directed Energy Deposition.

As Chief Product Officer, Meyer will strengthen APWORKS’ management team, bringing wide-ranging technical experiences and strategy expertise. Together with APWORKS team, he will devote considerable time and effort to pursuing the development of independent product innovations with significant added value for manufacturing in AM.

“I am very pleased to be joining APWORKS and look forward to shaping the future of manufacturing,” stated Meyer. “During my time working on technology strategy, I gained a good understanding of the AM value proposition, and I am excited to have the opportunity to translate that knowledge into products – watch this space.”

“We are proud to have Jon on board and look forward to leveraging his expertise in steering APWORKS forward. This is another clear step driving the development and execution of APWORKS’ growth strategy,” added Joachim Zettler, Managing Director at APWORKS. “Jon has long and impressive expertise in the field of additive manufacturing and inspires us with his self-motivated and innovative mentality. We are already looking forward to seeing various new product applications and innovative projects in the future.”
