EOS has now moved into its new Technology and Customer Centre in the Krailling Innovation Mile (KIM). Dr. Hans J. Langer, founder and CEO of EOS comments: "This new building represents a further milestone for EOS and is an expression of our company's growth and success story over the last twenty-five years. We operate in a market that is highly dynamic and which offers a huge potential. In the past we almost exclusively served the area of Rapid Prototyping, whereas now, Additive Manufacturing enables industrial applications in series production." And he adds: "This new building gives us more space in which to grow, allowing EOS to continually adapt to new market conditions and customer segments. Moreover, the new customer centre gives us the spatial flexibility we need to allow us to jointly develop current and future application solutions in Additive Manufacturing together with our customers."
With the construction of this new building, EOS underlines its loyalty to its location in the west of Munich. Christian Kirner, the company's COO, stresses: "With a floor space of 17,000m², the building is able to accommodate an additional 300 employees, while its design follows specific architectural, spatial and workplace concepts. The architectural concept renders the three key principles of the company's business strategy – innovation, quality and sustainability – both visible and tangible. The facility operates on the basis of an integral, sustainable energy concept." He continues: "In line with our corporate objectives, right from the start the emphasis was placed on the building's functional and ecological efficiency. Both its construction and operation were conceived with all due consideration for the efficient use of resources and energy-efficient building. In this way, the EOS building concept already complies with the requirements of tomorrow – apt reflection of the nature of the technology offered by EOS."
