EOS has announced the opening of its newest US facility in Pflugerville, Texas, USA. It was stated that the primary function of the Pflugerville site is to provide increased service and support for EOS’ growing North America market, which topped $100 million in fiscal year 2015.

The Pflugerville facility includes an innovations laboratory (iLab) allowing EOS application engineers to interact directly with customers, a working showroom containing the full range of the company’s AM systems and an AM Ventures division to help bring start-up ideas to reality.

“The opening of our Pflugerville facility helps us deliver even better and faster service and support to our regional customers,” stated Glynn Fletcher, President of EOS North America, Inc. “EOS has a company-wide goal of continually improving systems, materials and process solutions wherever we operate. Pflugerville’s location near Austin, one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the US, allows us to make connections with some of the most notable technology organisations and schools in the nation and enables a high-level, optimum response to our customers’ needs across multiple time-zones.”

EOS has experienced substantial global growth in recent years, particularly in the US “Our Pflugerville investment is a direct reflection of our ongoing success,” stated EOS Founder and CEO, Dr Hans J Langer. “Additive Manufacturing is rapidly becoming a more widely accepted solution to complex manufacturing requirements across a broad spectrum of industries. We’ve recently sold our 2100th system worldwide. With almost three decades of dedication to AM technology development, our company is committed to upholding the highest quality standards in our field.”

EOS has had a presence in the US since 2001 and currently has over 100 employees in North America with 30 field service engineers. Pflugerville is opening with approximately 30 employees, a number that is expected to double within the next two years.

EOS Materials, also known as Advanced Laser Materials, dedicated to the production and blending of polymer powder for both EOS systems and other powder-based AM technologies, will remain in Temple, Texas. The Novi, Michigan, site will also remain as an important regional technical centre for EOS of North America, Inc. Future plans to further expand within the US include the Boston and Northern California regions.
