Having purchased a sizeable industrial site adjacent to its Leicestershire headquarters last year, Matsuura UK will open its new Matsuura Additive Manufacturing Center to the public for the first time at an exclusive launch event to be held on 10-11-12 May 2022.
The additional site, spread over 1 acre, has 11,500 square feet of space consisting of a large showroom, extensive office space, warehousing and a loading dock. The Matsuura Additive Manufacturing Center building has been completely renovated and extensive infrastructure installed to accommodate the full range of our 3D printing portfolio from LUMEX, HP, Desktop Metal, ETEC and DyeMansion. Matsuura UK aims to be the only AM center of excellence in the UK where you can see the full workflow experience in any material – from concept to component, in one place, live.
Commenting on this important milestone for Matsuura UK, Managing Director Roger Howkins stated: “This investment is a recognition of our phenomenal growth in AM over the past three years and reflects our projected future success in the important and expanding 3D manufacturing sector. We are confident that our new, state-of-the-art facility and our growing and experienced AM team will continue to provide excellent service to our current and future customer base. It is our business model to invest in our people and infrastructure that provide the full customer care that has given Matsuura this continued success – both in additive manufacturing and in our CNC products.”
As well as being a subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer of machine tools and LUMEX metal 3D printers, Matsuura Machinery UK is also a major distributor of several other systems including HP MJF technology and, following a recently signed deal with Desktop Metal, also ETEC and Desktop Metal Group brands of products.
