Immensa builds $15 million 3D printing center in Saudi Arabia

Immensa has built a $15 million 3D printing center in Saudi Arabia to increase 3D printing capacity in the kingdom. Located in Dammam, the facility is part of the company’s regional expansion plans and will produce high-value parts for the petrochemical, energy and oil and gas industries on demand.

The 1,500-square-meter facility was inaugurated by Osama bin Abdulaziz Al-Zamil, deputy minister of industry and mineral resources. It is in line with the Kingdom’s efforts to localize manufacturing, increase competitiveness and create sustainable jobs.

Ali Abdulaziz Al-Turki, chairman of Immensa, highlighted the company’s expansion plans, which are supported by local engineers. The building will serve as the first private industrial additive manufacturing center in the Kingdom and is expected to serve markets in Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.

The facility will use U.S.-based General Electric 3D printers, including the region’s largest metal laser melting machine. Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 aims to become a hub for global manufacturing. The industrialization plans are intended to help diversify the economy.
