Chairman statement

Founded in 2013, Prodways Group quickly established itself as a leading player in industrial 3D printing. Only European player operating across the entire value chain, our group combines the design of machines and materials with the manufacturing of parts - in small and large series - aimed at the entire industrial 3D printing market.

We have a distinctive business model. It combines both sales of machines at the cutting edge of innovation and highly recurring revenue through the sale of our materials, but also a vertical integration in order to capture maximum value in markets with a high potential for the development of 3D printing. We have built a group focused on the future and on technological innovations to target promising market, such as aeronautics and the medical sector, where the productivity gains offered by 3 printing make it increasingly essential.

Accordingly, our revenue has increased from €100,000 in 2013 to €34.8 million in 2017, of which around 40% was achieved abroad.

Today, we are ready to go further. We are fully committed to continuing to innovate and seeking out fast-growing companies offering high added value, either because they will offer complementary technologies or allow us to make swift inroads into new markets.

To conclude, in a market with high growth potential, we are ready to seize opportunities, gain new markets, retain and recruit the best talents, and thereby create long-term value for all our stakeholders.
