BASF

’s new busi­ness unit has ac­quired 100% of the fil­a­ment pro­ducer In­nofil3D, head­quar­tered in Em­men, the Nether­lands. “With this ac­qui­si­tion, BASF is moving one step fur­ther along the value chain and can now pro­vide not only plas­tic gran­u­late for 3D print­ing but also the next pro­cess­ing level: the fil­a­ments,” said Volker Hammes, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at BASF New Busi­ness.

In­nofil3D is a lead­ing pro­ducer of high-value cus­tom­ized fil­a­ments (long, thin plas­tic fibers) that are used in fused fil­a­ment fab­ri­ca­tion, a spe­cial 3D print­ing process that man­u­fac­tures items layer by layer from mal­leable plas­tic. In­nofil3D will con­tinue its cur­rent busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and will also be­come a key de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion plat­form for fil­a­ments.

“We are very happy to be part of BASF. One of the first im­me­di­ate ad­van­tages is that this will ac­cel­er­ate the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of the new­est fil­a­ment tech­nolo­gies, mak­ing us even bet­ter able to help our cus­tomers be suc­cess­ful now and in the future,” said Jeroen Wig­gers, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of In­nofil3D.
