BOM Brabant Ventures and Highlands invest in accelerating growth
Additive Industries, the Dutch manufacturer of industrial 3D metal printing systems, has secured a EUR 10 Million loan from BOM Brabant Ventures and existing shareholder Highlands to accelerate the growth towards a worldwide top 3 position. Since its inception in 2012, Highlands has been the stable financing partner of Additive Industries and is now joined by BOM Brabant Ventures, a regional investment fund.
“Additive Industries plays an important role in ‘smart industry’ developments in Brabant, one of the cornerstones in our investment policy”, said Miriam Dragstra, CCO of Brabant Development Agency (BOM). “The company has everything in place to become a leading global player in its market. Both the employment and innovation of the Brabant manufacturing industries benefit from this. Therefore, we are proud to be financing Additive Industries’ growth plans and assist the ambitious management team to expand their global footprint”.
Jonas Wintermans is the co-founder of Additive Industries and also Board Member of Highlands, together with his brother Boris. “From the start, we have worked hard to build a stable and solid financial basis for the long term plans of Additive Industries”, he added. “We have great confidence in the ambitions of the team. This loan is both a proof-point in the company history that underlines the trust we have in the team, as well as an essential fuel for further development of the business”.
Additive Industries plans to invest the funds in advancing its process & application development activities, increasing R&D and expanding the support infrastructure.
