StrataSys Goes Acquiring

By on May 15th, 2011 in Event


It seems the big guys have their corporate acquisition shopping carts in motion recently. While 3D Systems was scooping up other companies last week, this week it’s Stratasys’ turn. They’ve announced the acquisition of Solidscape for USD$38M. 
What is Solidscape? They are a niche 3D printer manufacturer that specializes in high-precision devices for producing jewelry using the lost-wax method of manufacturing
Why would Stratasys buy them? According to their press release, they believe they can leverage this technology into other markets, including medical, dental and industrial as well as continuing to expand into the jewelry market.
