EOS GmbH marks its 25th anniversary with a move into new Technology and Customer Centre at its headquarter in Krailling

EOS, the technology and market leader in design-driven, integrated e-manufacturing solutions in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM), has now moved into its new Technology and Customer Centre in the Krailling Innovation Mile (KIM). Dr. Hans J. Langer, founder and CEO of EOS comments: “This new building represents a further milestone for EOS and is an expression of our company’s growth and success story over the last twenty-five years. We operate in a market that is highly dynamic and which offers a huge potential. In the past we almost exclusively served the area of Rapid Prototyping, whereas now, Additive Manufacturing enables industrial applications in series production.” And he adds: “This new building gives us more space in which to grow, allowing EOS to continually adapt to new market conditions and customer segments. Moreover, the new customer centre gives us the spatial flexibility we need to allow us to jointly develop current and future application solutions in Additive Manufacturing together with our customers.”

A few facts about the new building
With the construction of this new building, EOS underlines its loyalty to its location in the west of Munich. Christian Kirner, the company’s COO, stresses: “With a floor space of 17,000m², the building is able to accommodate an additional 300 employees, while its design follows specific architectural, spatial and workplace concepts. The architectural concept renders the three key principles of the company’s business strategy – innovation, quality and sustainability – both visible and tangible. The facility operates on the basis of an integral, sustainable energy concept.” He continues: “In line with our corporate objectives, right from the start the emphasis was placed on the building’s functional and ecological efficiency. Both its construction and operation were conceived with all due consideration for the efficient use of resources and energy-efficient building. In this way, the EOS building concept already complies with the requirements of tomorrow – apt reflection of the nature of the technology offered by EOS.”

Customers and long-term companions over the last 25 years congratulate the company on its anniversary:

• Christoph Weiss, Managing Partner of the BEGO Group: “We have enjoyed a good and close partnership with EOS since 2008. Their systems represent the current benchmark in selective laser-melting system engineering in the dental market and have facilitated our great success over three continents – Europe, Asia and America. Our joint success is also due to the reliable support and the very good personal contact that we have to the developers in Finland. Thanks to the sophisticated EOS technology and our BEGO processes and alloys, we are able to restore the smiles to the faces of patients worldwide – and it is this that drives us on every single day.”
• Bart Van Der Schueren, Executive Vice President Materialise: “We want to congratulate EOS with their 25th anniversary.  We have been successfully collaborating with EOS over their entire history, both as a software partner and as a user of their technology.  Looking back over these 25 years it is without saying that EOS has had a huge impact on the industry. Thanks to the effort of EOS, production is changing in a fundamental way and is giving unseen new opportunities for new products and businesses.”
• Terry Wohlers, Wohlers Associates: “EOS has played an important role in the history of Additive Manufacturing and industrial 3D printing worldwide. Without the company, the landscape of the industry would be much different today. We expect laser sintering to serve a wide spectrum of organizations in the future, especially as they uncover the vast potential of the technology.”
