The ExOne Company, based in North Huntingdon, PA, USA, a global provider of 3D printing machines and printed products to industrial customers, has announced that it has begun transitioning into its newly competed European headquarters facility in Gersthofen, near Augsburg, Germany.

The facility comprises approximately 14,000 m² of production, warehouse, service and R&D space in addition to approximately 2500 m² of offices. ExOne is consolidating its five existing leased facilities in Augsburg, which currently occupy an aggregate of approximately 7200 m², into its new facility. The move is expected to provide expansion capacity to support the company’s global growth strategy.

Rainer Hoechsmann, ExOne’s Chief Development Officer and General Manager of ExOne GmbH, commented, “We are beginning to transition our activities, which include production, warehousing, a production service centre, an R&D lab, as well as our European headquarters into our new location, and we expect to have completed our move through November. We are proud to dedicate our state of the art facility as the ‘S Kent Rockwell 3D Printing Innovation Center’ in honour of the leadership and significant financial support that Kent Rockwell has made in ExOne and its innovations in 3D binder jetting technology.”

Rockwell has been the leading executive of ExOne since his affiliated company purchased it in 2007 and guided the Company through its initial public offering in February 2013.

ExOne GmbH held the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of its new $20 million European headquarters in October 2013.
