Velo3D, Inc., headquartered in Campbell, California, USA, celebrated the opening of its new European Technology Centre with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Velo3D executives, European customers, local government leaders, and engineers. The new facility, based in Augsburg, Germany, will manage the company’s operations in Europe, host customers for trainings, and conduct meetings with customers and partners.

The new technology centre is over 110 m2 in size, with a lab area featuring a Velo3D Sapphire AM machine, a showcase of parts that were printed using the company’s technology, offices, and conference rooms for hosting customers and events.

“Three years ago, we shipped our first Sapphire printer to our very first customer and since then, we’ve experienced tremendous growth across all of our key industries,” said Benny Buller, Velo3D Founder and CEO. “Our new Technology Center in Augsburg will support our efforts in growing our presence in Europe in a similar manner and will feature an Additive Manufacturing solution capable of printing our customers’ most ambitious designs.”

Velo3D’s European customer success, sales, and support teams will reside in the technology centre, which will act as the hub for the company’s efforts in the region and showcase the end-to-end Additive Manufacturing solution from the company.

The company stated that Augsburg was selected for its central location to key regions in Europe, its proximity to Munich, and Velo3D’s existing presence in the region.
