EOS has headed the ‘Challengers’ category of the ‘Game Changer Award,’ which was initiated by Germany-based Manager Magazin and Bain & Company.

The award is for business models that reportedly transform entire sectors and industries. This inaugural award focused on the trend of digitization and its effects on the global economic system. In addition to EOS, the prize also honored two other companies in the ‘Incumbents’ and ‘Focused Players’ categories.

‘As the market leader and pioneer of the revolutionary industrial 3D printing technology, we considered EOS an obvious candidate for the Game Changer award,’ said Olaf Koch, CEO of METRO AG, who delivered the speech for EOS. ‘EOS' development, since its formation in 1989 to the present, provides impressive proof, as the company progressed from Rapid Manufacturing of prototypes through small series to series production for larger volumes.’
