Lübeck, August 28, 2018. On Saturday, SLM Solutions Group AG, one of the leading manufacturers for metal-based 3D printing, provided exclusive insights into the new company building in Lübeck-Genin during its "Open House”. The day was a great success for the company despite the rainy weather.
"We counted approx. 2,000 visitors. The day exceeded all our expectations. We were particularly pleased about the numerous participants in the factory tours. We increased our staff several times to make sure that all visitors could participate," Daniela Wedemeyer, Commercial Director of the SLM Solutions Group AG, stated.
Due to the high demand, SLM® employees guided visitors through the new production halls every 15 minutes already starting from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. They were above all amazed by SLM® technology and the numerous applications of selective laser melting in the aerospace industry, energy industry, tooling, automotive sector and in the field of medical technology. In addition to the factory tours, the attractive supporting program was one of the highlights of the event and included Human Kicker, an interactive circus and a comedy program. The information booth was also used for possible jobs at SLM Solutions, and even some applications could be submitted personally. The supporting program was rounded off by informative presentations by the Executive Committee, Business Development and the powder delegation. The focus was on the history and future developments of the company, SLM® technology and the materials that are used there.
Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions, also drew a positive conclusion: "We are delighted with the strong response and the great interest in our company. It was nice to present our technology in more detail to the people of Lübeck."
SLM Solutions has been based with its predecessor companies in Lübeck since 1957. With the new building, SLM Solutions Group AG has again confirmed its commitment to Lübeck. The company invested approx. 25 million in its new headquarters. As a result, the company now has a modern site with 25,000 m² of building area on 70,000 m² of property area, which provides reserves for further growth.
