BEAMIT SpA, Fornovo di Taro, Italy, has opened a commercial agency in Japan as part of its ongoing effort to bring its Additive Manufacturing services to the Japanese market. The company’s Japanese representative will be Eiji Akita, a former Senior Chief Engineer of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems.

BEAMIT is based in Italy and has more than twenty years of experience in metal Additive Manufacturing. It supplied advanced metal AM components to demanding industries such as aerospace, automotive, energy and racing, and holds a number of relevant quality certifications including AS 9100 for aerospace and NADCAP approval.

In 2019 Sandvik Additive Manufacturing acquired a significant stake in BEAMIT, to strengthen both companies’ ability to deliver high value to their customers. Today, BEAMIT is one of the largest AM service providers in Europe, operating more than thirty AM systems in its Parma facilities. The opening of a commercial agency in Japan is said to be in line with the company’s strategic vision to expand its international presence in highly technological geographic areas.

BEAMIT is expected to bring to the Japanese AM market a wide range of skills and knowledge developed in special processes, for the energy, motorsport, ASD (aviation, space, defence) industries and all sectors benefiting from Additive Manufacturing. 

Michele Antolotti, BEAMIT General Manager, stated, “We are eager to finalise another important step to pursue our business development strategy: Mr Eiji Akita is a well known professional with huge engineering expertise, in a position to leverage the services of BEAMIT to be applied to demanding engineering applications within the Japanese market.”

Eiji Akita commented, “I’m very excited to support BEAMIT’s advanced technology in entering the Japanese market.”
