May 13, 2016 – EOS held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week to mark the grand opening of its newest U.S. facility in Pflugerville, Texas. The event precedes the celebration of the company’s 27th anniversary this summer.
The primary function of the Pflugerville location is to provide increased service and support for EOS’ growing North America market, says the company, which topped $100 million in fiscal year 2015.
Among the site’s new offerings are an innovations laboratory (iLab), where EOS application engineers interact directly with customers, a working showroom containing the full range of the company’s additive manufacturing systems, and an Additive Manufacturing Ventures division to help bring start-up ideas to reality.
“The opening of our Pflugerville facility helps us deliver even better and faster service and support to our regional customers,” said Glynn Fletcher, president of EOS North America. “EOS has a company-wide goal of continually improving systems, materials, and process solutions wherever we operate. Pflugerville’s location near Austin, one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the U.S., allows us to make connections with some of the most notable technology organizations and schools in the nation and enables a high-level, optimum response to our customers’ needs across multiple time-zones.”
“Our Pflugerville investment is a direct reflection of our ongoing success,” said EOS founder and CEO, Dr. Hans J. Langer. “Additive manufacturing is rapidly becoming a more widely accepted solution to complex manufacturing requirements across a broad spectrum of industries. We’ve recently sold our 2100th system, worldwide. With almost three decades of dedication to AM technology development, our company is committed to upholding the highest quality standards in our field.”
