3D printing company Renishaw plans to strengthen its presence in the EU, following the completion of Brexit.

This includes new and expanded logistics centers in Ireland and Germany, an increase in stock levels throughout the EU region and converting local offices into independent subsidiaries.

Transactions and deliveries could then take place via these local subsidiaries instead of through the UK, the company said.

‘To mitigate against the possible impacts of Brexit, we have been focused on ensuring that our customers within the EU are able to receive optimal support from our local offices and that all transactions, including deliveries of goods, are as simple as possible,’ said Rainer Lotz, president of Renishaw's EMEA region.
