Andreas Schmid Logistik establishes joint venture with the 3D printing service provider voxeljet

Digital Supply Chain Solutions (DSCS) launches on November 2, aiming to revolutionize production and logistics processes.

Additive manufacturing methods already offer unimagined possibilities today. As a result, production and logistics processes are changing at an ever-increasing pace, opening up immense optimization potential for manufacturing companies.

However, 3D technology is still a real black box for many companies. Many organizations lack the transparency regarding possible applications. In-house, technical and temporal resources are often in short supply with this competence and make it almost impossible to recognize and evaluate these large, competition-relevant potentials.

Behind DSCS is a team of experts in 3D printing and logistics, whose goal is to analyze and optimize the production processes of companies and to use additive manufacturing where it makes economic sense. Because in the medium term, entrepreneurs will make different investment decisions than before, of which Andreas Schmid Logistik AG and voxeljet AG are convinced.

With voxeljet, Andreas Schmid Logistik has brought a partner on board who not only develops and builds their own printing systems, but also offers them for services. Based in Friedberg, Germany, voxeljet AG is one of the world's leading suppliers of 3D printing systems in the industrial environment, whose founders have been working on the subject for around 20 years. voxeljet employs around 300 people at five locations and has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2013.

Both Andreas Schmid Logistik AG, voxeljet AG and [bu: st] GmbH each own 33.33 percent of Digital Supply Chain Solutions (DSCS). In addition, Munich-based [bu: st] GmbH is strengthening its competence team around the theme of "3D meets logistics" as a strategic partner.
