The Unitedcoatings Group has finalized its rebranding and the company’s assets will henceforth be known globally as Lincotek. The new Lincotek name replaces Unitedcoatings Group, as well as all the individual group brands, including the medical AM services division which will be known as Lincotek Additive.
The group continues to be organized by divisions, similar to the previously defined structure. These include Lincotek Surface Solutions, the global division serving the IGT and Aviation market (formerly Turbocoating); Lincotek Medical (the global division focused on the medical market (combining the former Eurocoating, Surface Dynamics, NanoSurfaces, Anteco and Eurocoating Wuxi, as well as the former CoorsTek Medical), Lincotek Equipment (the global division focused on equipment solutions (formerly Artec). Ownership of the company will remain with Linda and Nelso Antolotti.
Rebranding also extends to Lincotek Additive, the global additive brand, serviced from activities within the Surface Solutions and medical divisions. Through the creation of Lincotek Additive, Eurocoating and Turbocoating are combining experience and expertise in the additive market. The companies have 3D printed over half a million devices with best-in-class yield rates, material consumption and per-unit costs.
“This initiative has been an important part of preparing our company for the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the markets we serve. We are now more global than ever before and the rebranding as Lincotek signals that we are entering a new era at the start of the 2020s. Management of the new company remains exactly the same, which means there’s a sense of real continuity for our existing customers,’ said Lincotek CEO, Winfried Schaller,
Headquartered in Rubbiano, Italy, Lincotek is a global contract manufacturer for markets including Industrial Gas Turbines, Aviation and Medical Device applications, as much as one of the most respected producers in the Additive Manufacturing field. The group has more than 1,100 employees located in 16 production facilities across Europe, North America and Asia.
