BigRep and BASF closed on a strategic partnership agreement to jointly develop 3D printing solutions for industrial applications. The collaboration includes the joint development of materials and printers for industrial customer requirements. On the other hand, BASF is investing in the company in order to further strengthen the area of 3D printing.
The announcement of a cooperation with the world’s largest chemical company BASF is a further signifier of its continuing dedication to engineering and manufacturing cutting-edge solutions.
BASF brings to the partnership extensive knowledge of materials and their industrial applications. It also has the broadest portfolio of materials in the chemical industry that can be used to develop 3D printing materials.
The announcement marks the second closing of a growth round initiated in the second half of last year for the Berlin-based 3D Printer manufacturer BigRep, which provides hardware, software, materials and services for large-scale 3D printing. In addition to its headquarters in Berlin, BigRep has expanded its operations to the USA and Singapore, and established a network of resellers across.
