26 years of EOS: steady global growth and technology leadership
During the last business year, EOS, the global technology and quality leader for high-end additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, was able to increase its sales revenues by 53 percent over the previous year, to EUR 263 million.
By October 2015, EOS had 750 employees worldwide, which represents an increase of 38 percent in its global workforce compared to the previous fiscal year. During that time, key positions were filled around the globe to provide even better support for customers on their way to additive series manufacturing. This enormous growth is reflected in the fact that individual locations are also experiencing steady growth.
Dr. Adrian Keppler, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at EOS: "Our company has been pursuing an unparalleled course of growth and success for many years. By October 2015, there were approximately 2,000 EOS systems installed around the world. We were able to double our installed base over the last three years; during the last two years, the number of metal laser sintering systems was doubled from 400 to 800 systems. During the past business year alone, the company sold 400 systems, including 220 metal systems. This underlines EOS' leadership role particularly in the metal segment, and the growing interest in this technology particularly in the series production segment." And he adds: "We expect that market demand will continue to rise in the future - not least because leading companies worldwide trust in our technology."
