German 3D printer manufacturer VoxelJet has announced that as of April 1, 2013 it has taken over Global TCT, a full-service 3D printing operation based in the UK. Aside from 3D printing and scanning, Global TCT also offers reverse engineering and metal finishing services.

With the recent uptick in interest and investment in 3D printing by the UK government, it makes sense that the German giant would want to grab a larger share of a market that looks ready to expand.

According to Voxeljet’s COO, Rudolf Franz, “We view the take-over of Global TCT as an important step in expanding our UK business. The combination of Global TCT’s profound market knowledge and the performance of our service centre, which is one of Europe’s largest operations for the on-demand production of sand and plastic moulds, will provide voxeljet with an excellent position in the fast-growing British market.”

Franz continued, “British customers can look forward to even better customer orientation with a complete and integrated machinery and service offering.”
