3D Hubs is an online manufacturing platform that provides engineers with on-demand access to a global network of manufacturing partners. Users can easily upload their design, instantly receive a quote, and start production at the click of a button.
Recently, the company has opened a new office in Berlin, marking a major next step in 3D Hubs’ European ambitions. 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.
Bram de Zwart, founder, and CEO of 3D Hubs said:
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.
It’s worth mentioning that the company opened new their new Paris offices in December last year after having raised a Series C funding round of $20 million (approx €18 million) by various investors, including Tony Fadell and founder of Nest.
With the expansion into Germany, 3D Hubs will offer German companies instant quoting, significantly reduced lead times, and virtually unlimited manufacturing capacity. 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.
The official 3D Hubs DACH Launch Event at the MotionLab Berlin, which was attended by more than 100 guests from all walks of the German, Austrian and Swiss manufacturing industry, marked another important milestone for the company.
With a broad-based, ambitious German team, led by Sales Director DACH Manfred Ostermeier and Marketing Manager DACH Thomas Mann, the company plans to produce at least 1.5 million parts for German companies by the end of 2020.
