SIA Engineering Co. Ltd. (SIAEC) and Stratasys Ltd. have signed a joint venture agreement to establish an additive manufacturing service center to provide 3D-printed parts for use in commercial aviation. 

Under the agreement, SIAEC will have a 60-percent equity stake in the joint venture, with Stratasys holding the remaining 40 percent.

This Singapore-based additive manufacturing joint venture will offer design, engineering, certification support and part production to customers worldwide including airlines, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

We look forward to partnering with Stratasys to provide our customers with new service offerings as we continue to enhance our suite of MRO services,” says SIAEC CEO Png Kim Chiang.

“We are excited to be working with such an innovative and ambitious partner. By drawing on industry knowledge at SIAEC, we have tremendous opportunity to deliver unique solutions in this high-requirement and highly-regulated segment,” says Stratasys CEO Ilan Levin.
