AMEXCI, an integral part of the Nordic additive manufacturing ecosystem, has announced a large-scale strategic initiative to significantly enhance its manufacturing capabilities. AMEXCI is investing in a state-of-the-art facility, tailor-made for AM, and the latest industrial 3D printing technology available in the market. This will streamline AMEXCI’s operations for high-volume serial production, create space for future growth, and position the company as one of the leading AM entities in Europe. Principal shareholders, FAM, Saab, Scania, and Ericsson, are leading this investment.

“We feel that the time is right to expand”, said Edvin Resebo, CEO of AMEXCI. “Having built AMEXCI from the ground up over the past plus five years together with our partners and customers, we have tuned our processes to fit a variety of different industries and specialized towards serial production. Our greatest asset is the talented team we have formed, with deep knowledge across various AM verticals. It is key for our expansion to continuously invest in the latest technology, enabling us to offer unique industrial 3D printing capabilities in Europe and the Nordic region.”

“FAM are great supporters of AMEXCI’s expansion. We think it’s a good next step for the company and believe it will create value for the whole industry. We hope that AMEXCI will be able to support companies to take the next step in their production, allowing for the next generation of great products. We are glad to be part of this journey and think it’s relevant to build competence and capacity within the area of AM in Sweden”, said Håkan Buskhe, CEO of FAM.

Apart from growing the customer base for AMEXCI, there are strategic interests in the technology, as described by Micael Johansson, CEO of Saab Group, “Additive manufacturing is of strategic importance for Saab and the number of applications in our product portfolio constantly grows. We see the AMEXCI expansion as a way to support our growth and to enable technology to increase our competitiveness.” Saab serves the global market of governments, authorities, and corporations with products, services, and solutions ranging from military defense to civil security.

The expanded capabilities of AMEXCI will equip the company to act as an enabler for future innovations. “Expanding our AM capacity with AMEXCI is not just a strategic move, but a testament to our commitment to innovation and delivering superior products to our customers. The key to successfully embracing this transformative technology lies in the know-how we have diligently built together. This expertise empowers us to push boundaries, drive progress, and shape the future of manufacturing”, said Börje Ekholm, CEO of Ericsson.

”Since the start of AMEXCI, the company has been important for us providing knowledge, training, and competence within the area of additive manufacturing. We believe these technologies will be even more important in the future, both as a possibility to manufacture parts with a complex design, a quick way to produce short series and contribute to our transformation towards the sustainable transport system,” said Christian Levin, CEO of Scania and TRATON GROUP.

An important component of this expansion is the brand-new factory being built in the industrious region of Örebro, Sweden. This significant investment underscores Örebro Region’s standing as a premier industrial hub in Sweden, particularly in advanced manufacturing. The new factory will not only boost AMEXCI’s operational capabilities but also enable deepened research collaboration opening for further engagement with the local Örebro University.

“We are honored to welcome AMEXCI and its expansion to Örebro. This investment not only strengthens our position as a premier industrial hub in Sweden but also propels the entire additive manufacturing industry forward. With the establishment of their state-of-the-art factory and collaboration with Örebro University, AMEXCI is poised to create the world’s best additive manufacturing experience and drive technological advancements. This strategic growth plan demonstrates their commitment to our region, and we look forward to a prosperous future together,” said the Mayor of Örebro, John Johansson.
