BASF is to establish a new group company - BASF 3D Printing Solutions - on 1 September. This wholly-owned subsidiary of BASF New Business will be headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, at the site of InnovationLab. It will work closely with researchers and application engineers from BASF and external partners, such as universities and potential customers, in order to develop solutions for a wide array of requirements.
“The field of 3D printing for industrial applications is highly dynamic and still emerging. This means there is a need for agile, startup-like structures with interdisciplinary teams and quick decision-making processes. Combining the customer-focused 3D printing activities in one location at a dedicated business is an important success factor,” said Volker Hammes, MD at BASF New Business and future MD of BASF 3D Printing Solutions.
