Unitedcoatings Group, headquartered in Rubbiano, Italy, has launched Lincotek Additive to provide a complete AM service as part of a wider initiative by the group, which is designed to consolidate a range of respected brands under the Lincotek name by January 15, 2020.

Turbocoating will reportedly become Lincotek Surface Solutions, while Eurocoating, Surface Dynamics, the former CoorsTek Medical (recently renamed Lincotek Medical), NanoSurfaces, Anteco and Eurocoating Wuxi will become Lincotek Medical and Artec Lincotek Equipment.

According to the group, Lincotek Additive will enable an improved focus on its Additive Manufacturing activities and customers will benefit from more expertise in research, design, engineering, production and assembly. Unitedcoatings Group explains that as a contract manufacturer with the complete service offer, Lincotek can help customers to scale up production and act as the supply chain partner that allows customers to reach economic and performance targets as much as the requested product characteristics.

The group stated that the ownership and management team of the Unitedcoatings business will ensure continuity as the transition to Lincotek takes place, providing reassurance and stability for all existing customers and partners.

Winfried Schaller, CEO of Unitedcoatings Group, commented, “The group’s success under its different brands has been impressive and now it’s time to present ourselves under one coherent umbrella while leveraging the goodwill and technology depth of our current businesses. The group has become a real global player – a much larger and unique company, strongly rooted in our core values and service concept.”

Schaller added, “The rebranding process is part of our internationalisation strategy, which – in line with our growth plans – prepares the group for future challenges and guarantees continuity to our partners and the wider market in the long run.”
