Geo Kingsbury offers wider range of metal additive manufacturing solutions

AddUp, a French manufacturer of metal additive manufacturing (AM) machines and production lines, has acquired another French AM machine producer, BeAM.

The Strasbourg firm is a leader in directed energy deposition technology, which is dedicated to the production of large and highly complex parts, feature addition, and component refurbishment including the repair of aero engine parts.

As AddUp is represented in the UK, Ireland and the Middle East by sole sales and service agent Geo Kingsbury, the latter is now able to offer a considerably increased AM equipment portfolio in those markets.

Based in Clermont-Ferrand, AddUp was formed as a joint-venture company by Fives Group and Michelin on 1st April 2016. With a US subsidiary, it employs over 180 people worldwide, including 100 engineers working on the development of new AM solutions.

BeAM was created four years earlier, has subsidiaries in Cincinnati and Singapore and employs more than 45 staff. It has a broad range of customers in France and other countries, particularly in the aerospace, defence and energy sectors.

BeAM and AddUp share the same ambition to support customers in the development of metal additive manufacturing solutions which take into account industrial robustness as well as health and safety certification.

Vincent Ferreiro, AddUp’s CEO stated: “Together, BeAM and AddUp will be uniquely positioned in the 3D printing market by offering customers a comprehensive range of metal additive manufacturing solutions, with a particular focus on training and consulting and the production of parts for proof of concept.”

Vincent Gillet, BeAM’s CEO commented: “BeAM was at a key stage in its development with the broadening of its product line and geographical expansion. The arrival of AddUp and its shareholders, Fives and Michelin, enables us to secure BeAM’s future development and benefit from their industrial expertise and the pooling of our respective resources.”
