"We're joining forces with PostNord AB because we see an opportunity to improve the manufacturing supply chain, particularly in the Nordic region," says Peter Oberparleiter, CEO of GKN Powder Metallurgy. "This partnership will offer an incredible benefit to our customers by reducing part turnaround by nearly two business days which is critical for the customers PostNord serves. Our metal 3D printing technology is disrupting the traditional manufacturing industry by greatly reducing manufacturing lead-times with the capability of producing more complex products. Collaborating with PostNord AB bridges the logistics gap we see in the marketplace and ensures that printed parts get to manufacturers efficiently and on time. That is the first step before establishing additive manufacturing linked to the GKN Powder Metallurgy print network."  

"Metal 3D printing offers tangible benefits to manufacturers who implement the technology, with significant bottom-line benefits," says Ylva Ekborn, CEO PostNord Strålfors Group. "This collaboration only scratches the surface of what's possible as manufacturers explore new ways to capitalize on advancements in technology and new logistics strategies to gain a competitive edge. Furthermore, this shows PostNord can be a supplier of 3D production in a wide range of materials, from plastic to metal, throughout the Nordic region."
