GKN Powder Metallurgy is extending its partnership with PostNord AB, a provider of communications and logistics solutions in the Nordic region, to accelerate the accessibility of additive manufacturing with the goal of fully revolutionizing supply chains. Automation will be a key focus of the collaboration going forward.
The two companies initially formed their partnership in 2018, when they announced their intention to empower global manufacturers to optimize part supply chains with streamlined logistics at Formnext. Now, they will build on their agreement to unlock the potential of 3D printing to transform supply chains.
“3D printing creates enormous opportunities for companies to change the entire approach to their supply chain, from manufacturing to logistics and warehousing,” said Ylva Ekborn, CEO of PostNord Strålfors Group. “We are pleased to have a strong collaboration partner in GKN who shares our vision to unlock the potential of 3D printing in future supply chains in the Nordic region.”
