Visitech AS, a company with headquarters in Drammen, Norway, and a provider of high-end UV exposure subsystems enabling state-of-the-art imaging solutions for additive manufacturing, bioprinting, and direct imaging maskless lithography, has formed ‘Visitech Americas’, based in Texas – a new subsidiary for sales, marketing, engineering, and product services in support of the rapidly growing additive manufacturing market in the United States, and the Americas. This formation is the result of long-lasting cooperation with its distributor, Keynote Photonics – a Dallas-based DLP design house and manufacturer of industrial projectors, which has now been acquired by Visitech. Keynote Photonics assets and staff will transition to new roles in the coming months.
