Dutch 3D printing service Oceanz acquires Heijcon 3D Solutions

Dutch 3D printing service provider Oceanz has announced the acquisition of Heijcon 3D Solutions, another Netherlands-based AM service bureau. With the acquisition, Ede-based Oceanz aims to strengthen its position in the professional additive manufacturing market.

Part of the broader Heijcon Metal Solutions company, Heijcon 3D Solutions was founded in 2009 as a 3D printing service with a special focus on concept development, 3D designing and engineering. Targeting the professional market, Heijcon 3D Solutions reportedly experienced a growing customer base over the years, which Oceanz will accommodate through the acquisition.

According to Oceanz, Heijcon 3D Solutions will remain connected and will continue with its personal approach to 3D printing service through expert advice. Interestingly, the acquisition follows years of collaboration between the two companies, and is thus seen as a logical step. Going forward, Oceanz will be able to offer its clients an even wider range of 3D printing services, including engineering and product modeling.

“With this acquisition we can better meet the needs of our customers,” commented Erik van der Garde, CEO of Oceanz. “In addition to professional 3D printing, we now offer even more extensive possibilities in the field of design and engineering, greater production possibilities and a wider choice of materials.”

Sigrid Goossens, CEO of Heijcon 3D Solutions, echoed the excitement about the acquisition, saying: “I am very pleased that we can join Oceanz. Their expertise and their leading role in the field of 3D printing and additive manufacturing is a perfect match.”

Oceanz is a growing professional AM service that targets the business-to-business market. Offering a broad range of 3D printing solutions (including SLS, FDM, SLA, DLP, SLM and more), the company primarily serves customers in the manufacturing, medical device and retail markets.
