Italian metal additive manufacturing specialist BEAMIT and ZARE, an additive manufacturing service bureau, have announced a merger. The newly combined companies will form an organization with more than 100 employees and operations across five plants concentrated in a 40 Km area between Parma and Reggio Emilia. The company also operates four commercial offices in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan.
According to a press release, both companies will continue to operate with their brands, but activities will converge into BEAMIT Group, which provides “a comprehensive range of materials, processes, technologies and certifications to the international Aeronautical, Aerospace and Defence, Energy, Motorsport, Oil & Gas, Transportation & Industrial sectors,” the companies said.
This follows the recent integration of Pres-X, which provides additive post-processing solutions.
“I had the opportunity to meet special people and courageous entrepreneurs, Sauro Zanichelli and Andrea Pasquali. The idea to grow the Group further was born during one of these meetings: BEAMIT, Pres-X and ZARE,” said Mauro Antolotti, BEAMIT president. “The extended organization is created to serve and support our common customers with a true 360-degree service span as well as greater investment capacity and financial strength, in order to become even stronger to meet further market challenges, while securing total reliability for present and new customers into this journey together.”
“We have known Mauro for quite a long time and when he shared with us the challenging project he had in mind, we were truly impressed by the potential that the creation of the Group would generate,” said Andrea Pasquali, ZARE general manager. “As he explained the amazing scenarios obtained by our merger, we immediately realized the huge step forward that this would bring in additive manufacturing as well as the maximization of customer service: a must for ZARE. With the Group, process optimization and integration will be unprecedented: this will enable to unlock new opportunities and break process limits that are still difficult to overcome today. Integrated additive manufacturing is finally concrete: this Group is ready for the market.”
The Board of Directors of the new organization will include equal representation of BEAMIT and ZARE top management.
