Jul. 16, 2018 – Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, today announced it has joined GE Additive’s newly-launched Manufacturing Partner Network (MPN). As a launch partner for the MPN, Burloak plans to work closely with GE Additive to accelerate the use of additive manufacturing technologies across different market segments.
“We’re delighted to have Burloak Technologies join as one of the first partners in our MPN. We continue to be impressed by their vision and strategy for additive and their business. They have big plans and we’re looking forward to supporting them as they grow,” said Jason Oliver, president and CEO at GE Additive.
Burloak says it plans to invest in GE Additive equipment, materials, software and technology and use them as a development platform to scale production and industrialization of all work referred through the MPN.
“Burloak Technologies is proud to be a launch partner for GE Additive’s Manufacturing Partner Network,” said Peter Adams, co-founder and president of Burloak Technologies. “We’ve systematically eliminated many of the hurdles that companies may have previously faced in their adoption of additive manufacturing technology. Our participation in the MPN, along with the development of our state-of-the-art Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, will make it even easier for customers to accelerate their adoption and full deployment of this exciting technology across their product lines.”
In May, the company announced the establishment of its C$104M Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence. The centre aims to provide every service required to move customer projects from concept, to optimized design for additive manufacturing (DFAM), to full-scale production in a single location. The centre is expected to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2019.
