Carpenter Additive closes site in UK

The manufacturer of metal powders for 3D printing, Carpenter Additive, has closed its production facility in Widnes, United Kingdom. This decision led to a significant number of redundancies. In the future, Carpenter will supply its customers for additive manufacturing technologies from its remaining sites in the USA and Sweden.

Carpenter Additive was formed in 2019 from the acquisition of LPW Technology, a British specialist in powder bed alloys, powder management and monitoring. Carpenter invested around 81 million US dollars in the acquisition. At the time, the Group spoke of an “aggressive” strategy to achieve a leading position in the AM market. Now, five years later, Carpenter has to tackle this goal with reduced resources.

The company has stated that the closure will not have a significant impact on its offering to customers.
