the time is now to invest in your am strategy


You may have seen that Additae recently wrote a 3-part article in collaboration with The Barnes Group, about what companies can do to attract and retain talent more effectively in Additive Manufacturing. Their objective was to share the ways that they, with guidance and assistance from their peers in the industry, have re-designed the recruitment process specifically for Advanced Manufacturing.

There’s been a lot of movement in 2017 towards a collaborative and solution-driven market, not just in client calls and meetings, but also at numerous conferences in Europe and the US, and it’ll be interesting to see what impact this has on how AM businesses operate, and how it will affect company recruitment strategies in 2018.


The market is evolving so quickly, in ways that many of us never predicted, so now is the time to invest in planning your overarching AM strategy. Consultants like The Barnes Group Advisors have the kind of experience needed to advise businesses of all sizes, and at various stages of their AM journey, on the steps they can take to be successful. Additae have a proven track record of successfully placing experienced professionals in Additive Manufacturing positions at all levels, both in Europe and the US. 


Greg and Jak from Additae will be at FormNext next week from the 14th to the 17th, so why not send them a message and arrange to chat over coffee (or a beer!) about how your company can take that next step in AM, and avoid the potential pitfalls. You can contact them at or I will also be at Formnext representing The Barnes Group Advisors, and would be happy to discuss any facet of your AM strategy. You can reach me at”
