Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Dutch Filaments, a major Holland-based supplier of filaments to several popular brands, has been acquired by Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers (MCPC) Europe B.V. With the chemical company’s support, Dutch Filaments will be able to give an even better answer to the fast-growing demand for its filaments. Additional expertise, materials, techniques and the global footprint of MCPC will also further push our contribution to the 3D printing market.

Dutch Filaments started as the result of an alliance between the founders Jan Meulendijks, Wim Spoormakers and Richard Luiken with Henry van Tilburg. After the merger in 2015 Dutch Filaments became a unique developer, manufacturer and supplier of private label, polymer based, 3D printing materials with a sales focus on 3D printer manufacturers, distributors of 3D printing materials and toll manufacturing for chemical companies and OEM’s.

For Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers, the acquisition of Dutch Filaments is an important step to become a leading polymers and material supplier for 3D printing technology platforms to accelerate the implementation of 3D printing production. Expansion of manufacturing 3D printing filaments to other regions is planned to support worldwide customers.
