The acquisition of Taulman3D is a perfect complement to Braskem’s existing portfolio of next-generation filaments (Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), carbon fibre, glass fibre, and recycled polymers), pellets, and powders designed specifically for 3D printing applications. Founded in 2012, Taulman3D is trusted by thousands of professionals around the world and offers a wide portfolio of filaments and polymers designed to address specific and varying customer applications. Taulman3D products are available worldwide, through a variety of exceptional distributors on six continents. Taulman3D’s headquarters, research, and development as well as production and distribution facilities are in Linton, Indiana, Braskem said in a press release.
“Braskem’s acquisition of Taulman3D brings a high-quality 3D filament producer with a globally diversified client list and a highly complementary product portfolio. With projections for the 3D printing industry expected to grow from $15 billion today to $78 billion by 2030 – growing at an estimated 20 per cent CAGR – we see enhanced opportunities to serve this rapidly growing demand. Today’s acquisition doubles Braskem’s market share in the additive manufacturing market and further accelerates our growth strategy,” Jason Vagnozzi, global commercial director of additive manufacturing, Braskem, said.
“We’re extremely proud to have built one of the leading 3D printing businesses in the world over the last decade, with private and public sector clients in dozens of countries. Braskem’s significant research and development resources and their world-class production teams will enable us to serve our clients with even greater focus and product innovation as additive manufacturing becomes increasingly engrained in global supply chains,” Zach Lichaa, Taulman3D president, said.
