Two of the most experienced AM industry professionals, Stefan Ritt and Mahendran Reddy, will join the Fehrmann Tech Group management team and support the expansion of the company’s metal AM powder business as Vice Presidents.

Having just relocated from Singapore to Hamburg at the end of December 2021, Mahendran Reddy is set to establish a successful network of research institutes, suppliers, customers, and like-minded professionals for the Hamburg based Fehrmann Tech Group on a global level as Vice President Global Ecosystem Development since January 2022 as the company has already established in Germany.

Reddy is internationally known, among other things, for his successful establishment of the NAMIC (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster) in Singapore. As Business Development Director, he was actively involved in driving the adoption of additive manufacturing in the Asian industry and expanding the AM ecosystem thereby initiating joint research projects between industry and academia and initiating the flagship NAMIC Global AM Summit series and outreach programs.

A design and technology enthusiast, in the short time he has been working for Fehrmann, has already launched a technical article on the potential of innovative high-performance aluminum alloy in a leading Indian aluminum trade journal and has been providing insights into the 3D ecosystem in Singapore during a free online event as part of the 3D Printing Tuesday organized by 3D Printing North Network on 15 February. The following day, he will be one of the distinguished speakers at ALCircle EXPO 2022, addressing the Aluminum industry. Amongst the first steps towards the goal he has set for himself: “I hope to bring my extensive knowledge of the creative and manufacturing industries in both the private and public sectors in a business environment to accelerate Fehrmann Tech Group’s global presence to position it as a global thought leader in material innovation”.

Stefan Ritt, well-known in the industry as European liaison and global ambassador for AMUG (Additive Manufacturing Users Group), among others, has held the position of vice president of market development and communication at Fehrmann Tech Group since 1 February. In the past, the diploma engineer had worked as an additive manufacturing expert in equipment technology, software, teaching, and standardization. He coordinated all of SLM GROUP’s global marketing activities and presented the first powder bed laser metal printer at an AMUG conference.

As European Managing Director of SPEE3D, he introduced another new metal AM technology to the market, and in his role as International Business Advisor, he supported further clients in expanding their global additive manufacturing and prototyping activities. Now moving to a material developer and manufacturer is exciting for Ritt: “We are moving into a market that is relatively saturated with equipment technology at the moment. In the future, further application possibilities will more likely arise through the use of new materials on existing machines. As an expert in material development in 3D printing and casting with decades of experience, Fehrmann Materials is brilliantly positioned to develop these new materials. Working with materials is now a logical step for me to expand and round up my knowledge through new learning.”
