“We are very honoured by Vice Premier Ma Kai’s visit and look forward to further intensifying our business relationships with potential local customers and partners as well as strengthening the dialogue with the Chinese government,” stated Dr Langer.

“EOS has a clear commitment to China which is one of our key growth markets. Over the last five years, we were able to grow our installed base from ten systems back in 2010 to over 130 in 2015. Over the coming five years we expect a continued and substantial growth of the number of installed systems in this region.”

“We also see a clear commitment to this technology by the Chinese government. Additive Manufacturing is a driver for change for the Chinese manufacturing world and as such supports China’s evolution from a mostly factory-based economy to one built on high-end and high-tech manufacturing,” added Dr Langer.

In 2013 EOS opened a new office and technology centre in Shanghai, China, which enables advanced support services to Chinese customers. Across China EOS also has service offices in Beijing, Chengdu and Shenzhen, it operates with a broad sales network and cooperates with ten local distribution partners.
