In the last several years, the company has greatly extended its overall business and team to service new and current customers across every region on the planet.

 

According to the 24th edition of The Wohlers Report, revenue for the overall additive manufacturing market is likely to climb to $35.6 billion in 2024, up from $7 billion in 2018. Ultimaker's own growth supports these findings. The company, based in January 2011, currently employs around 400 people. There are now 125,000 Ultimaker 3D printers in the field, compared to about 67,000 units in 2017. Ultimaker Cura, the company's open source software, has 500,000 distinct users per month, up 100% in one year, and processes 1.4 million print jobs per week, a 200% increase in one year.

 

"The strategic alliances we have formed over the last few years are enhancing the adoption of 3D printing within the skilled environment. Compelling business cases from global enterprises such as Ford, L'Oréal, Airbus, Volkswagen Autoeuropa, and Decathlon inspire others to embed desktop 3D printing in their professional workflow," said Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. "We picked this brand new building as our headquarters because it is easily approachable for our employees and will support our ongoing growing as we attract new talent to help professionals innovate every day with 3D printing."

 

Furthermore, the company unveiled new corporate branding, a design that has been in the works for almost a year.

This is a great moment in time to also announce the rebranding of our corporate identity," Burger added. "The new logo and the other visual assets are designed with the fullest respect for our legacy and geared to further improve Ultimaker as a B2B brand. We see it as a signal to the market and customers that we serve that we are a professional company determined to accelerating the world's transition to digital delivery and local manufacturing."
