Additive Industries has been selected as the winner among eight ‘New Champions’ by Dutch National newspaper ‘Financieele Dagblad’.

This year it is the third time that Dutch National newspaper has set out to identify new champions in the Dutch corporate life. In this contest the jury is to find the most promising young technology companies or ‘New Champions’.

New Champions (‘Nieuwe Kampioenen’ in Dutch) are ambitious and fast growing companies with disrupting technologies serving international markets that are born in The Netherlands. The jury of the contest this year consists of experts Jan Hommen, Eva Gladek, Justin Jansen and Robert Verwaayen and they selected Additive Industries unanimously as the winner.

“We are extremely proud to win this competition,” says Daan A.J. Kersten, CEO of Additive Industries. “It is a recognition of our industrial 3D metal printing systems, producing high end products and parts for leading companies like Airbus, GKN and BMW in demanding industries every day.”

Additive Industries sees winning this contest as a compliment to their investors, suppliers, customers and of course especially to the team. As Jonas Wintermans and Mark Vaes, COO and CTO of Additive Industries put it: “Together, they collaborate day-in-day-out in a very open way to advance the technology and drive it to become the industry standard for 3D series production.”
