3D printing company Renishaw says that it is considering reorganizing its additive manufacturing (AM) business by co-locating its AM engineering, marketing and commercial activities at its New Mills headquarters site in Gloucestershire, UK. The new headquarters could house an expanded demonstration facility, while the manufacturing of AM systems will continue at the company's Miskin site near Cardiff, South Wales.

As part of this proposed consolidation of activities, the company's site at Stone in Staffordshire, UK would close at the end of 2019.

‘We have invested heavily in all aspects of AM system design and are very pleased with the market adoption of the RenAM 500Q multi-laser machine,’ said William Lee, Renishaw's chief executive. ‘We have exciting plans for future systems that will further boost the adoption of AM for series production, but in a competitive global business we need to be agile and efficient in how we bring these new technologies to market.’
