thyssenkrupp to set up additive manufacturing TechCenter Hub in Singapore

Initiative to help unlock greater potential of additive manufacturing in Singapore and across Asia Pacific

thyssenkrupp has announced of establishing an additive manufacturing TechCenter hub in Singapore this year. The future Singapore Additive Manufacturing TechCenter Hub, supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), will serve as the regional hub for the company’s Mülheim TechCenter and aims to unlock the potential of additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, for customers in Singapore and across Asia Pacific.

“thyssenkrupp has always been at the forefront when it comes to innovation in engineering,” said Dr. Donatus Kaufmann, member of the executive board of thyssenkrupp AG and responsible for Technology and Innovation. “We have made great strides with our Additive Manufacturing TechCenter in Germany. Establishing a hub in Singapore now reflects our commitment to bring our transformative innovations closer to the Asia Pacific region to meet our customers’ needs.”

Kaufmann also added that the Singapore Hub not only strengthens thyssenkrupp’s presence and operations in Singapore and Asia Pacific, but also “gives us the opportunity to benefit from Singapore’s innovation ecosystem and to serve new customers in the Asia Pacific region.”

Additive manufacturing in Asia Pacific is expected to grow to more than $5.5 billion by 2025and Singapore is certainly fertile ground for the innovation to grow.
