EOS announced that Glynn Fletcher has been named president of EOS of North America, Inc. The appointment reinforces the company’s already strong position in the growing market for AM technology.
“Throughout his career Glynn Fletcher’s deep understanding of innovative production processes has proved invaluable to the manufacturers of high value parts,” says Dr. Hans Langer, founder and CEO of EOS. “Our customers will benefit from not only his long manufacturing experience but also his international perspective formed in Europe and the Americas. This will strengthen our ability to help our customers find new ways to exploit the potential of our technology.”
Fletcher was previously the president of GF Machining Solutions (GFMS) Americas LLC, Lincolnshire, Ill. (formerly known as GF AgieCharmilles). Jointly, GFMS and EOS have previously showcased the power of Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing, for example, demonstrating a nearly automatic process chain for creating injection and blow-mold tooling at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), America’s largest event of its kind. This process chain example reinforces the concept that Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing are complementary.
Fletcher will also be managing two companies within the EOS family: Advanced Laser Materials (ALM), the leading provider of high performance polymers, including customized blends, for the AM industry, and Integra Services, which offers high-quality service and support for rapid prototyping and AM technology.
