The Swedish company AMEXCI is investing heavily in expanding its 3D printing capacities. A new, state-of-the-art production facility specifically for additive manufacturing is being built in Örebro. The main investors are partner companies Ericsson, Saab, Scania and FAM. AMEXCI says it aims to position itself as a leading 3D printing supplier in Europe.
“We feel that the time is right to expand”, says Edvin Resebo, CEO of AMEXCI. “Having built AMEXCI from the ground up over the past plus five years together with our partners and customers, we have tuned our processes to fit a variety of different industries and specialized towards serial production. Our greatest asset is the talented team we have formed, with deep knowledge across various AM verticals. It is key for our expansion to continuously invest in the latest technology, enabling us to offer unique industrial 3D-printing capabilities in Europe and the Nordic region.”
“FAM are great supporters of AMEXCI’s expansion. We think it’s a good next step for the company and believe it will create value for the whole industry. We hope that AMEXCI will be able to support companies to take the next step in their production, allowing for the next generation of great products. We are glad to be part of this journey and think its relevant to build competence and capacity within the area of AM in Sweden”, says Håkan Buskhe CEO of FAM.
Major shareholders such as FAM, Saab, Scania and Ericsson are leading this investment to increase the company’s competitiveness.
In addition to expanding the customer base for AMEXCI, there are also strategic interests in the technology, as described by Micael Johansson, CEO of Saab Group:
“Additive manufacturing is of strategic importance for Saab and the number of applications in our product portfolio constantly grows. We see the AMEXCI expansion as a way to support our growth and to enable technology to increase our competitiveness.”
“Expanding our AM capacity with AMEXCI is not just a strategic move, but a testament to our commitment to innovation and delivering superior products to our customers. The key to successfully embracing this transformative technology lies in the knowhow we have diligently built together. This expertise empowers us to push boundaries, drive progress, and shape the future of manufacturing”, said Börje Ekholm, CEO of Ericsson.
Christian Levin, CEO of Scania and TRATON GROUP, shared his view on the investment, saying ”Since the start of AMEXCI, the company has been important for us providing knowledge, training, and competence within the area of Additive Manufacturing. We believe these technologies will be even more important in the future, both as a possibility to manufacture parts with a complex design, a quick way to produce short series and contribute to our transformation towards the sustainable transport system.
An important aspect of the expansion is the construction of a new factory in the industrial center of Örebro, Sweden. The new facility will not only strengthen AMEXCI’s operational capabilities, but also enable deeper research collaboration, particularly with the local Örebro University.
The Mayor of Örebro, John Johansson, commented AMEXCI’s decision to expand in the Region, stating, “We are honored to welcome AMEXCI and its expansion to Örebro. This investment not only strengthens our position as a premier industrial hub in Sweden but also propels the entire Additive Manufacturing industry forward. With the establishment of their state-of-the-art factory and collaboration with Örebro University, AMEXCI is poised to create the world’s best Additive Manufacturing experience and drive technological advancements. This strategic growth plan demonstrates their commitment to our region, and we look forward to a prosperous future together”.
AMEXCI’s strategic direction indicates a growing relevance of additive manufacturing in various industries. With the support of leading companies and a focus on research and development, AMEXCI is setting the standard for the future landscape of additive manufacturing in Europe. The new facility in Örebro will play a key role in this by combining industrial manufacturing with scientific research.
