3D Hubs announces its launch within the German market, opening new offices in Berlin. Entry into the German-speaking market marks a major next step in 3D Hubs’ European ambitions, having opened their new Paris offices in December last year after having raised a Series C funding round of $20 million by various investors including Tony Fadell, the inventor of the iPod, co-inventor of the iPhone and founder of Nest, the company reports.
Headquartered in Amsterdam, 3D Hubs is regarded as one of the fastest growing and most innovative Dutch companies (Deloitte, 2019) and is already working with over 35,000 companies worldwide, including 27% of the Fortune 500.
With the expansion into Germany, 3D Hubs will offer German companies instant quoting, significantly reduced lead times and virtually unlimited manufacturing capacity, the company reports. The future of manufacturing will be distributed, allowing engineers to develop products faster and more efficiently using the latest technologies and a global network of manufacturing partners. Companies such as Audi, ABB, NASA and German Orbital already use 3D hubs for both prototyping and end-part production.
“Entering the German market further strengthens our position as the leading force behind digital manufacturing in Europe. With an experienced local team on the ground, we are excited to provide German companies with a platform that helps them compete with the biggest players in the industry,” explains Bram de Zwart, founder and CEO of 3D Hubs.
