Just under three years after the founding, the Berlin technology start-up BigRep wins the international technology company Körber AG as a further investor in its current B-financing round.

For BigRep, a manufacturer of one of the world’s largest 3-D printers and supplier of additive manufacturing systems, this is an important next step in their growth. “Through this additional investment in our company, we are able to further expand the development and solutions as well as increase our global footprint and sales,” says René Gurka, CEO of BigRep. “Körber is a very experienced technology company that can support us not only financially, but also in industrial machine building. We are looking forward to working with our new colleagues. ”

At Körber, too, all signs point to growth. The strategic investments of the Group are focused on future technologies and markets. “Since its founding 2014, BigRep has developed into a competitive, steadily growing company with more than 70 employees and offices in the US and Asia,” said Michael Horn, member of Körber AG’s Board of Management. “In addition to our existing know-how, we want to explore the possibilities of additive manufacturing even more intensively through our joint venture with the IRPD through our participation in BigRep. In addition, we will use these competencies within our business areas for further customer applications development.”

In addition to kloeckner.v, the Venture Capital Subsidiary of Klöckner & Co SE, Körber AG is the second investor to participate in the current financing round.
