DSM and FormFutura Announce Distribution Collaboration
Geleen, 14 September 2018 – Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, today announced that FormFutura will distribute its high performance additive manufacturing filaments to customers in the fast-growing additive manufacturing/3D printing industry.
The collaboration gives manufacturers, OEMs, designers and 3D printing service bureaus access to DSM additive manufacturing filaments for prototyping and industrial parts production.
A 25-year pioneer in stereolithography, DSM started developing high performance filaments based on its engineering plastics portfolio. Building on the company’s deep market-specific application understanding and expertise, DSM is further expanding its additive manufacturing activities into all polymer processing technology platforms – including experience from years of research in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Multi Jet Fusion, Ink Jet and Binder Jet processes.
“At DSM, we believe that partnerships across the additive manufacturing ecosystem are critical to unlock the full potential of this new technology,” said Jill Cohen, Global Director Marketing & Sales for DSM Additive Manufacturing. “Our collaboration with FormFutura allows us to extend our global reach, providing customers with easy ordering and support for our high-performance filaments across all regions and markets.”
“We are proud of this collaboration with DSM as we see a rapidly growing demand in the FFF 3D printing market for industrial grade and high-performance materials in both industrial and SME sectors,” said Arnold Medenblik, CEO of FormFutura. “The DSM materials are a great addition to our FormFutura product range and through our global network of resellers, these high-performance polymers will now be available to everyone. This new portfolio will also open doors to new markets for both FormFutura and our partners.”
FormFutura is a global supplier of filaments to the additive manufacturing industry, delivering excellent customer service, quality and service throughout the entire supply chain. Due to their operational effectiveness and customer focus they can unburden customers and add value to their supply chain by offering favorable purchase conditions and an extremely fast supply and (re)stocking of DSM products.
