SLM Solutions Group AG has moved into its new Lübeck, Germany, headquarters. The company built a custom 270,000-square-foot facility on a 17-acre parcel with room for additional future expansion. The new building represents a 56-percent expansion over the company’s former location, offering ample space for the 350 on-site employees, an additive manufacturing applications technology center to aid customer process development and streamlined production of selective laser melting systems for the global market. 

Based in Lübeck since 1957, the company’s expanded footprint will optimize its supply chain while streamlining and expanding its manufacturing capabilities in a modern, sustainable working environment. In addition to increasing production capabilities for its selective laser melting systems, SLM Solutions expanded the facilities and resources for their applications team to continue partnering with customers in process and parameter development to benchmark 16 machines. Dedicated classrooms with machines are available for customer training, and best practices such as a finishing room ventilation system are on display for customer consultations.

The new headquarters also includes space for corporate sales and administration offices as well as a full spare parts warehouse and service department. Daniela Wedemeyer, Commercial Director, says, “We have created contemporary and modern workstations for our employees. In addition, there is ample space for further expansion as we continue to grow in the future.”
